Graduate First

Its the late seventies in a small town in northern France. Unemployment is high and the future looks bleak.  A bunch of late teenagers contemplate their futures through a blur of drugs, casual sex, alcohol and occasional violence.  A film that,  when you watch it, you wonder what the point is.  But it stays with you in the days following.   Coming of age in a gritty,  realistic setting.   Follow up to his ten years on with young, largely unknown actors.  An updated, French take on Bronco Bullfrog perhaps.  Worth a look.
