Ostomy Memories of Eight Flicks #3

This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

Next on our list of sleepers is “Breaking Away.” It's a 1979 coming-of-age movie about four buddies just out of high school suffering the angst of wondering what to make of their lives. Filmed in Bloomington, Indiana, it pits our heroes against the frat boys at Indiana U. Dave, the primary character, played by Dennis Christopher, is an Italophilic bicycle fanatic, and the film builds to a bike race climax, all to the wonderful music of Mendelssohn (4th Symphony, the “Italian”) and Rossini. This is a delightful, funny, intelligent treasure of a movie.  If you're a guy, you had friends just like Dave's three buddies, but they all come across as individuals rather than types.  Just thinking about it now makes me want to watch it again.
