The story of Alana Kane (Alana Haim) and Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973. Written and directed by heralded filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson (BOOGIE NIGHTS, MAGNOLIA), this potent coming-of-age drama tracks the treacherous navigation of first love.
"With LICORICE PIZZA, [Anderson] has sifted through a haze of wildly embellished tales and half-forgotten memories — and pieced together something that feels more concrete, more achingly, tangibly real, than just about any American movie this year." —Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
“I don't want to get too hyperbolic here, but watching LICORICE PIZZA reminded me why I love movies so much; particularly the way they can drop us into another place and another time, and embed us completely into the lives of total strangers. If LICORICE PIZZA had stretched on for another hour, I would've been perfectly content to go along.” —Chris Evangelists, Slash Film
