A group of childhood buddies teetering precariously on the brink of delayed adulthood and responsibility reconvene at their local diner during the Christmas holidays of 1959... Inconveniences such as impending marriage and pressing career choices are momentarily forgotten in the face of much loftier subjects such as cars, girls, sports, and rock and roll... The dialogue sparkles, combining wit and an air of melancholy in equal measure, and then there is the never-better cast captured on the cusp of stardom.
