Taking Off is a 1971 film comedy. It was Czech director Milos Forman's first American film. It tells the story of a group of parents whose children have run away from home. The parents take the opportunity to rediscover their youth. It features a number of memorable set pieces, including an open-mic record label audition which is woven throughout the film, featuring a number of female singers (including a young Carly Simon and a haunting acoustic ballad by a then-unknown Kathy Bates) performing old standards, folk ballads, and rock songs; a meeting in which a group of generally middle-class conservative parents are taught how to smoke marijuana; and a raucuous but sweet game of strip poker played by the adults. It was written by Forman in collaboration with John Guare, along with Jean-Claude Carriere and John Klein. Part of the movie also takes place at a Tina Turner concert. The film won the Grand Prix at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival.
