EVERYBODY WANTS SOME
2016, Paramount, 116 min, Dir: Richard Linklater

Writer-director Richard Linklater initially attended college on a baseball scholarship, and he revisits those freewheeling days in a spiritual sequel to DAZED AND CONFUSED. Freshman Jake (Blake Jenner) enjoys the freedoms of college while hanging out with a motley group of teammates at a Texas university in 1980. With a young ensemble cast that no doubt includes some future stars, this loose-limbed comedy captures a moment in life when good times and good friends are the only things that matter.
