In search of the real America, two freewheeling bikers, Wyatt (Peter Fonda), nicknamed "Captain America," and Billy (Dennis Hopper) embark on a cross-country trip from LA to New Orleans. Along with Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate, Easy Rider helped kick-start the New Hollywood phase during the late 1960s and early 1970s—major LA studios realized the potential profitability of low-budget films made by avant-garde directors. Part of the Michigan Theater Summer Classic series.
