Adapting the 1968 countercultural stage smash, Forman and choreographer Twyla Tharp liberate the movie musical, making song and dance emerge organically from their film's locations and settings. John Savage's shy Midwesterner Claude is in New York City on his way to start basic training when he runs into a tribe of hippies who call Central Park their home and who live a life of absolute freedom. Taken under the wing of the group's leader, Berger (Treat Williams), Claude pursues the love of debutante Beverly D'Angelo, the star-crossed affair scored to classic tunes like "Aquarius," "Let the Sunshine In," and the anthemic, rave-up title song.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) began a yearlong residency at Metrograph in July 2017, bringing exciting and entertaining programs to the big screen.
