Named best film of 1979 by film critic Gene Siskel, this Milos Forman directed movie is considered by some to be even better than the hit Broadway musical of the 1960s on which it is based. John Savage plays a farm boy from Oklahoma who heads to New York City to enlist in the Army. In Central Park he meets a group of free-spirited hippies protesting the Vietnam War, led by Berger (played by Treat Williams), who takes him under his wing and tries to rescue him from going to Vietnam. An energetic and evocative look at the spirit that was the "Age of Aquarius," Hair was nominated for both Golden Globe and the French Cesar Awards. (Dir: Milos Forman, U.S., 1979, 121 min.)
