40/40 Day 13 Report

Breaking Away is a hilarious, uplifting, coming of age film that still holds up more than 30 years after it was released. Dennis Christopher, Dennis Quaid, Jackie Earle Haley and scene-stealer Daniel Stern are four local kids lacking direction in life after high school. It was certainly deserving of it's best picture nomination and Academy Award for best original screenplay.

In a first for the 40/40 series, more than half of our guests had never seen the film. If there's one thing I love more than enjoying an old classic with friends, it's introducing them to a personal favorite they've never seen before.

On Deck:  We're halfway through the 40/40 series, and celebrate with the lovely Caroline Munro in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad.
