The Moviegoer, July 30-Aug. 5

TCM Big Screen: Fast Times at Ridgemont High Director Amy Heckerling’s 1982 feature film debut deftly captured the fun, drama (statutory rape, unplanned pregnancy) and ennui of a group of teenagers at a typical Southern California high school. Adapted by Cameron Crowe from his book of the same name, the film includes early performances from rising stars Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eric Stoltz, Forest Whitaker, Nicolas Cage (as Nicolas Coppola) and Sean Penn as the bodacious, surfer-stoner Jeff Spicoli. AMC, Cinemark, Edwards, Regal and other theaters. July 30 and Aug. 2, 2 and 7 p.m. $12.50.
