Back to the Future. 1985. USA. Directed by Robert Zemeckis. 116 min.
Screenplay by Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale. With Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover. A supercharged DeLorean sends teenager Marty McFly back to 1955, where he finds himself presiding over the romance of his parents (Lea Thompson and Crispin Glover)—if he can get past his future mom’s inconvenient crush on him. Long trapped in turnarounds and plagued by casting problems, Back to the Future unexpectedly emerged as a box office smash, and it stands today as one of the best-loved American films.
