Lost in America
DIRECTOR: ALBERT BROOKS
CAST: ALBERT BROOKS, JULIE HAGERTY
Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty are two thirtysomething Los Angeles yuppies fed up with the rat race who set out in a Winnebago to discover the real America—”We have to touch Indians,” he enthuses, “We have to see the mountains and the prairies and the whole rest of that song”—and are terrified when they actually discover it. The quintessence of Brooks’s astringent comic style, and one of the defining comedies of the Reagan Era, which finds even the drop-out solution of the 1960s has been forestalled.
