I didn’t really care for any of the new scenes but this is still a meaningful, moving, mesmerizing and, most of all, spellbinding film. The “More Than A Woman” dance sequence at the end and that soundtrack, oh my God. So beautiful. This movie is the definition of subtlety. It says so much by saying so little. It’s the second time I’ve seen it this year and honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if I watch it again over the summer. Why can’t all movies be this good?

Absolutely loved it. Incredibly entertaining. Not only does it have a killer 70s soundtrack with The Beegees and Yvonne Elliman but this movie actually has something to say. It explores what life is like for this group of Bay Ridge 19 year-olds, who don’t really know who they are and they don’t know what they want to do with their lives. It’s about learning to grow and learning to be more mature. It also does a good job at exploring the lower middle class especially through Tony and Stephanie’s relationship. Also one of John Travolta’s best performances. This is a new one of my favorites from the 70s.
