All he needed was a lucky break. Then one day she moved in.
Vision Quest is a coming of age movie in dramatic 80’s fashion in which high school wrestler Louden Swain (Matthew Modine) decides he wants to be something more than an average high school athlete and sets his sights on a prize that many don’t think he can win or even come close, the “Golden Singlet”. He then sets out to reach his goal alone, without much support from his ornery father or dickhead coach. His father rents a room to a young drifter, Carla (Linda Fiorentino). The drifters my parents brought in our house never looked like that?
Swain falls in love with her and she helps him stay focused and prevents him from losing sight of his goals. If you like wresting tights, and over zealous acting with a touch of singlet bulges, this is a film for you. If you never got the whole high school wrestling thing,(me) it might be tough visually looking at dudes junk all movie.
Here is number 4 Vision Quest(1985)
Four days before the match, Lowden Swain checks in at 180 pounds. He then proceeds to go get five sweatshirts and a garbage bag, which will make up his outfit for the next couple of days. All eating will stop from here on out. Ahh, to be a high school wrestler spitting in a cup.
