For the 6th year running, Balerno Village Screen is screening in partnership with the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling. This year’s offering comes from the late 70s and is the much loved Breaking Away.
If you were into cycle sport in the late 70s, early 80s, this was the film. https://t.co/tXQ7F8F8iz

This charming, Academy Award winner (1979, Screenplay) cycles high on comedy as four friends come to terms with life after high school. When top-notch cyclist Dave (Dennis Christopher) learns that the world’s bicycling champions are always Italian, he attempts to turn himself into an Italian, driving his parents (Barbara Barrie, Paul Dooley) crazy. But everything changes after he meets the Italian racing team-an encounter that ultimately leads him and his friends (Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley) to challenge the local college boys in the town’s annual bike race.
