40th Anniversary! Preceded by an exclusive recorded interview with director Amy Heckerling by filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson

The most outrageous, era-defining comedy of its time, Universal Pictures' FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH returns to theaters for its 40th anniversary. In August 1982, more than a decade before she wrote and directed CLUELESS, AFI alumna Amy Heckerling made her directorial debut alongside first-time screenwriter and future Oscar® winner Cameron Crowe (ALMOST FAMOUS) with this iconic, inside view of teenage American life. The all-star cast includes future Academy Award® winner Sean Penn, future Oscar® nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold and Ray Walston. FAST TIMES also marked the film debut of future Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage and co-starred future Emmy® winner Anthony Edwards (ER) and future Oscar® winner Forest Whitaker. This hilarious portrayal of southern California high school students and their favorite subjects — sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll — features a classic soundtrack that includes hits from The Go-Go's, Oingo Boingo and The Cars. Four decades later, FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH remains as bold, daring and funny as it was a generation ago. DIR Amy Heckerling; SCR Cameron Crowe, from his book "Fast Times at Ridgemont High: A True Story;" PROD Irving Azoff, Art Linson. U.S., 1982, color, 90 min. plus 20-min. bonus content. RATED R
