Stefan (Tom Cruise) is determined to leave the sleepy Pennsylvania mining town of Ampipe where he is growing up. An exceptional athlete, Stef sees football as his ticket out. His pursuit of a scholarship, however, brings him at odds with his combative coach (Craig T. Nelson). While rebelling against his coach and his town, Stef takes up with Lisa Litski (Lea Thompson), an attractive schoolmate and talented saxophone player.
Tom Cruise graduated to leading man status with this film, one of many early 1980s pictures with strong teen identities. His sexy, defiant presence carries the film. First time director Michael Chapman (cinematographer of TAXI DRIVER and many other films) proves himself especially adept in capturing the intense football sequences.
All The Right Moves (1983) [Blu-ray] A dynamic performance by Tom Cruise fuels this drama of a high school football star who sees a college scholarship as the only way out of the impoverished Pennsylvania steel mill town where he grew up. But Cruise finds his chances at a bright future getting darker when he clashes with his coach (Craig T. Nelson), who also has his eye on a job far away from the burned-out burg. With Lea Thompson, Chris Penn. 91 min.
