Experience the real, uncensored '60s counterculture in this compelling mixture of drugs, sex and armchair politics. Academy Award - winner Jack Nicholson (Best Actor, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, 1975; Best Supporting Actor, TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, 1983; Best Actor, AS GOOD AS IT GETS, 1997) stars with Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper (who also directs) in this unconventional classic which Time magazine hails as one of the ten most important pictures of the decade. Nominated for an Academy Award (1969) for Best Screenplay (written by Fonda, Hopper and Southern) EASY RIDER continues to touch a chord with audiences of all ages.

Nominated: Best Writing, Story and Screenplay Based on Material Not Previously Published or Produced, Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Nicholson), 1970 Academy Awards; Golden Palm, 1969 Cannes Film Festival
It is far above the usual films on this subject with probable appeal to younger and selective audiences and art playoff and regular chances looking bright.
