Now, to be a bit more specific, it's about four friends (surprise!) who grow up together during the 60's and come in and out of eachother's lives. There is the whole thing about the torment in the 60's and "free spirits" but it really upholds the traditional values, showing the faults in this type of adolescent thinking. There is also a oldworld-newworld conflict because Danilo, the main character, is an immigrant from Yugoslavia.
There are so many levels of plot, but the emotion is what makes this film special. There are extreme moments of elation followed by bitter sadness and depression. It's real, it's beautiful, and it's a must see!
... did I mention FOUR FRIENDS is my favourite movie ever (OK Orson, after Citizen Kane... ;o) ) ?
It covers a decade (the 1960's) in the lives of four friends, with most of the emphasis being on two of them (Danny and Georgia). It covers so much ground that it's difficult to describe: love, friendship, sex, social issues, coming of age, defining yourself, what is worth fighting for, etc. IT CONTAINS THE FUNNIEST BARFIGHT EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE. It contains one of the most surprising plot turns I have ever seen (if you see this coming, my hat is off to you). I cry and laugh every time I watch it.
It also manages to profoundly show the various conflicts that ripped at the fabric of American society in the 60's without trashing America itself.
Just get it.

1980s coming of age movie. Big fan of Craig Wasson and enjoyed his acting here. Gal was a bit "over the top" but seemed to mature and calm down as the film progressed. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Linda Jane Lease

Four friends was an enjoyable movie. A bit dated, but if you lived through the sixties you would appreciate it.
I worked on the film in Chicago as a stunt woman. Read more
