“Makes good movie making seem easy.” - Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
“Wonderfully honest and completely accurate when it comes to depicting that stagnant environment that keeps young people like Tony pinned down.” - Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News
In this camp classic (and Gene Siskel’s favorite film of all time) Tony (John Travolta) works a dead end job and still lives at home in Brooklyn, but at the nightclub he comes alive. When a dance competition is announced, he tries to escape his reality through disco.
