Four Friends ★★★ Georgia's Friends 1981 (R)

The magical good and bad dream of the 1960s is remembered in this story of four friends. A young woman and the three men in love with her first come together in high school and then separate, learning from college, war and drug abuse, and each other in this ambitious movie from Steve Tesich, the writer of “Breaking Away.” Good performances by all. 114m/C VHS, DVD . James Leo Herlihy, Craig Wasson, Jodi Thelen, Michael Huddleston, Jim Metzler, Reed Birney; D: Arthur Penn; W: Steve Tesich; C: Ghislan Cloquet.
