Four Friends

Overview

Also known as Moritorium and Georgia's Friends, Four Friends follows the titular quartet from high school to young adulthood. The film is set during the tumultuous 1960s, an era when everyone's values were turned inside out, shaken around, and reassembled. The central character is first-generation American Craig Wasson, who confounds his Yugoslavian father Miklos Simon by pursuing his own let-it-all-hang-out lifestyle. Wasson's best friends are athlete Jim Metzler and chubby Michael Huddleston; all pursue the ...

Overview

Also known as Moritorium and Georgia's Friends, Four Friends follows the titular quartet from high school to young adulthood. The film is set during the tumultuous 1960s, an era when everyone's values were turned inside out, shaken around, and reassembled. The central character is first-generation American Craig Wasson, who confounds his Yugoslavian father Miklos Simon by pursuing his own let-it-all-hang-out lifestyle. Wasson's best friends are athlete Jim Metzler and chubby Michael Huddleston; all pursue the affections of bewitching Jodi Thelan. Though they are obviously deeply in love with one another, Wasson and Thelan continue to foolishly avoid a long-term commitment as the sixties unfold around them. Four Friends calls for a fresher approach than the one offered by director Arthur Penn, whose handling of the material is much too pat and old-fashioned.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This stab at an epic drama about the 1960's has some interesting scenes but ultimately falls apart. Steve Tesich's autobiographical script is heartfelt but unfocused: it never finds the right balance of personal drama and social allegory it is looking for and suffers from some abrupt transitions at key dramatic moments that pull the viewer out of the story. It's also so stacked with characters that some never get to develop properly (with the exception of one key scene, the character of Jim gets to do little besides stand around). Arthur Penn's direction is sensitive to his actors but it suffers from an unsteadiness of tone like the script: a few moments that veer into high comedy or unexpected tragedy are jarring and work against the story's flow. In terms of performances, there is a winning turn from Craig Wasson as main character Danilo but Jodi Thelen's overstated, oft-campy work as Georgia makes the character annoying when she should be mesmerizing. In fairness to Thelen, the script often forces her character to act out in illogical ways but the overall lack of subtlety in both writing and performance work together to make this characterization ring false -- and that's a major problem because the film depends on her character being some mythical representation of youthful American freedom. In short, Four Friends is an intriguing but deeply flawed work that strains under the weight of its own ambitions.
