The story of Alana Kane and Gary Valentine growing up, running around, and going through the treacherous navigation of first love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973.
Language: English – subtitles: Dutch
15-year-old smooth-talker Gary spends most of his nights at the Tail 'o the Cock bar , sitting at the bar, supping a Coke and schmoozing with the maître 'd. When 25-year-old Alana visits his school to make the annual headshot photographs, he chats her up and manages to get her number. And that's despite their age difference; it’s a hesitant start to one of the most memorable and complex on-screen romances in years.
The film, written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There will be blood, Magnolia, Phantom Thread), brings two newcomers to the big screen including Cooper Hoffman, son of the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Licorice pizza is recommended by the film committee because...
this movie doesn't have a plot, it's got a soul!
- It’s a totally unique and endlessly surprising coming-of-age tale that is carefully sentimental and knock-down, drag out funny. The writing is faultless. The cinematography, rich and colorful. The film is a highlight reel of fantastic acting. The moment the credits rolled, I wanted to rewind and watch it again. New York Post.
- Licorice Pizza is rated M for offensive language, sexual references and drug references and should also be rated five emoji love hearts for sheer charm. At The Movies.
