Movies @ the Smith is a summer film festival reflective of our exhibition Art School High. The selected movies are steeped in nostalgia. This festival is an opportunity to examine Hollywood’s interpretation of high school, as well as a chance to see some classic films in a unique space, surrounded by art.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Stacy Hamilton (Jennifer Jason Leigh) is a pretty, but inexperienced, teen interested in dating. Given advice by her uninhibited friend, Linda Barrett (Phoebe Cates), Stacy gets trapped in a love triangle with nice guy Mark Ratner (Brian Backer) and his more assured buddy Mike Damone (Robert Romanus). Meanwhile, Stacy’s classmate Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn), who lives for surfing and being stoned, faces off against Mr. Hand (Ray Walston), a strict teacher who has no time for the slacker’s antics.
