Taking Off (1971)

This 1971 comedy-drama stars Lynn Carlin and Buck Henry as Lynn and Larry Tyne – middle-class New York suburbanites, whose 16-year-old daughter, Jeannie, runs away from home when she gets in trouble with her parents.

In the process of trying to unravel the mystery of the girl’s whereabouts, the couple rediscover their own lives, joining a group called the Society for Parents of Fugitive Children.

This funny, alternative coming-of-age tale features exclusive musical appearances from Ike & Tina Turner, Carly Simon and actress Kathy Bates (as ‘Bobo’ Bates).
