About Hair

The 1979 film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Hair, directed by Milos Forman, captures the essence of the counterculture movement of the late 1960s. The film follows Claude (John Savage), a young man from Oklahoma who is drafted into the Vietnam War, and his encounters with a group of hippies led by Berger (Treat Williams) in New York City.

The film's soundtrack, featuring songs like "Aquarius" and "Let the Sunshine In," is a highlight, as is the vibrant cinematography that captures the energy and chaos of the era. The film's themes of peace, love, and anti-war sentiment are still relevant today, making it a timeless classic.

While the film received mixed reviews upon its release, it has since gained a cult following and is considered a quintessential representation of the counterculture movement. Hair remains a powerful reminder of the importance of standing up for what you believe in and fighting for peace and justice.
