Everybody Wants Some
Richard Linklater’s “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused follows a group of '80s college baseball players over one weekend before the start of the new school year. Blake Jenner’s Jake, a freshman pitcher, serves as the audience's conduit to a testosterone-filled team that most critics found fun to hang out with (though a few did not). Zoey Deutch plays Beverly, Jake’s love interest, and some critics wished there were more well-rounded female characters like her throughout the whole narrative. As a whole, however, the early reaction to Linklater’s latest has been overwhelmingly positive, making it a sure bet to join its predecessor in late-night showings at revival houses across the country for decades to come.
