Everybody Wants Some


Dir. Richard Linklater. 2016, 116 mins. DCP courtesy of Paramount Pictures. With Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin. Richard Linklater follows his highly acclaimed films Boyhood and Before Midnight with a pure delight, this “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused. Set in the world of 1980s college life, Everybody Wants Some follows a group of friends navigating their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. “Linklater’s most sustained comic bliss-out,” raved Justin Chang (Variety). “Linklater indulges his characters’ antics with such wild, free-flowing affection that you might miss the thoughtful undertow of this delightful movie: Few filmmakers have so fully embraced the bittersweet joy of living in the moment—one that’s all the more glorious because it fades so soon.”
