Overview

Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) are a pair of Harley-riding, freewheelin’ social drop-outs who’ve just completed a major drug deal in Southern California. Stashing their wads of cash into Wyatt’s bike, they hit the road in search of spiritual truth – hoping to make it to New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras. On the way they meet a ragtag bunch of individuals – sparring with bigoted small-towners, enjoying a meal with a generous rancher, spending a rough-and-tumble day in a free love commune, a night in gaol, grass with Jack Nicholson, and LSD with a couple of call girls – all while "looking for America”. But after a terrifying drug experience down South, the two travellers wonder if they’ll ever find a way to live peacefully in an era so charged with drastic change.

Why You Should See This Film

The ultimate road movie (well, alongside Thelma and Louise) and the film that made the late Peter Fonda a rightful star. Easy Rider is one of finest pieces of counterculture cinema ever made, and was a call to arms for a new kind of American filmmaking. Alongside Hopper, Fonda and Nicholson, there are cameos from Phil Spector, Toni “Hey Micky” Basil, and Karen Black. Meanwhile, the soundtrack is as iconic as the film's souped-up choppers, featuring The Band, The Byrds, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Steppenwolf. The perfect film for a spring evening.
