At its heart, Breaking Away is a classic coming-of-age story: inspiring, heartbreaking, and with a group of underdogs (aka the "Cutters") that you can't help but root for. Dave is obsessed with everything cycling, and he and his friends set out to throw down against the rich kids at the annual college cycling race. Nominated for a score of Academy Awards, Breaking Away brought home best original screenplay in 1979.
