A gang of wild college jocks enjoy three days of freewheeling fun before school starts, in Richard Linklater’s ‘spiritual sequel’ to Boyhood and Dazed and Confused.

Drama 2014 117 mins



At the tail of a Texan summer in 1980, a gang of wild college jocks enjoy three long days of freewheeling fun before school starts in earnest, encompassing a near endless stream of parties, sex and horseplay.

Richard Linklater has described the latest of his adolescent odysseys as a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused, picking up from that film’s late ‘70s high-school hijinks with a different set of characters. But it can also be seen as a successor to Boyhood, which ends on the day a teen stars college. Here, we follow the experience of freshman Jake (Blake Jenner) as he ingratiates himself with a rowdy set of new housemates and embarks on a hedonistic three-day voyage of discovery. As expected from Linklater, this is much more than a crass frat-boy comedy, imbued with the filmmaker’s sensitivity, sense for character and a typically breezy narrative flow that focuses as much on contemplative dialogue as its party set-pieces.
