Preview of ‘Everybody Wants Some!’ – No spoilers

“Richard Linklater’s new film, “Everybody Wants Some,” opens, aptly, on April 1, just before the start of the new baseball season. It’s a hearty and joyous look back at life at a Texas college in 1980, as seen from within the bouncy bubble of the varsity baseball team, the weekend before the start of classes. The freshman pitcher Jake Bradford (Blake Jenner) and his teammates flaunt their idiosyncrasies as they strut around campus with competitive swagger, yet they’re just as lost and searching as any other undergraduates, and that tension lends the lighthearted and rowdily comic drama emotional force. Linklater captures the times with a pin-perfect sense of style, down to the droop of the mustaches and the cut of the short shorts, and his yet unheralded actors mesh with an easygoing exuberance.”
