Synopsis by Olivia Cantor

In California's San Fernando Valley, the early 1970s witnessed the birth of the noteworthy record store chain, Licorice Pizza. As the business continues to gain traction across the state, teen actor Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman) navigates the successes and pitfalls of burgeoning fame while traversing the tricky terrain of first love with the charming Alana (Alana Haim). Bradley Cooper, Christine Ebersole, Sean Penn, Maya Rudolph, and Tom Waits co-star in this nostalgic coming-of-age drama written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
