RETURN OF THE SECAUCUS 7 (1979)
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY JOHN SAYLES
Seven friends reunite a decade after their radical college days for a dramatic and revelatory weekend. This is John Sayles “triumphant directorial debut” (Los Angeles Times), which inspired the later hit film The Big Chill and heralded the arrival of a brilliant new force in independent cinema just as that phenomenon was being recognized as a ‘movement’. Featuring Gordon Clapp, David Strathairn, Maggie Renzi, and John Sayles himself, this movie helped a generation explain itself to the world.
