Free Flick Fridays: Hair

Today's Free Flick selection takes us back to the "Age of Aquarius," with some good old-fashioned youth political opposition. Enjoy the vibrant sounds and colors of an eerily reminiscent time with Milos Forman's 1979 film, Hair.


Dir. Milos Forman (1979)

Congratulations to “Hair” for winning the Best Musical Revival at the 2009 Tony Awards! The original “rock-musical” made its Broadway debut in 1968, yet its political and social messages ring as true today as they did back then. Brimming with youthful exuberance and idealism (and some really fabulous music), it is a classic not to be missed.

Of course, Broadway tickets are not cheap or easy to get; as an alternative, we present the 1979 film version as our pick of the day. With a stellar cast that includes John Savage and Beverly D’Angelo, Hair transcends time, with songs you know and love. Ignore the continual Summer 2009 downpour and “let the sun shine in” with a movie sure to awaken your internal hippie.
