Directed by Jonathan Demme | 1977

With Paul Le Mat, Candy Clark, Bruce McGill

Made in the midst of the CB radio fad that swept the 70s, Demme’s loving ode to offbeat Americana follows a host of small-town oddballs (with monikers like Chrome Angel and Electra) whose lives crisscross over the airwaves. In the director’s hands, what could have been a novelty attempt to cash in on a craze becomes a sweet, human, and funny community portrait.
