Dazed and Confused is a coming-of-age film which follows the mayhem of group of rowdy teenagers in Austin, Texas, celebrating the last day of high school in 1976. The graduating class heads for a popular pool hall and joins an impromptu keg party, however star football player Randall “Pink” Floyd (Jason London) is fighting against coaches who want him to focus on football and abstain from partying. Meanwhile, the incoming freshmen try to avoid being hazed by the seniors, most notably the sadistic bully Fred O’Bannion (Ben Affleck) and there is a standout breakout performance from Matthew McConaughey as the elder statesman of the group Wooderson.
