Easy Rider

Released 1969 Rating 18 in UK
Director Dennis Hopper Writer/s Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda
Starring Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, Jack Nicholson
Source of story Original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A couple of hippy motor bikers buy a load of drugs and go on a road trip from LA to New Orleans. On the way they come across many American communities, some welcoming, some hostile to their evident alternative lifestyles. Good music.
Content Limited bad language, little nudity but much drug taking and some unpleasant violence.
A View This is a “must see” film, and I have added it to my review list because it is older than most people. It should make people think about their own communities and their attitudes to outsiders.
