Flicks in Five: Back to the Future

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Back to the Future is a modern American classic. Set in 1985, the film follows the travels and travails of Marty McFly, a teenager who is accidentally transported back in time to 1955.

Problematically, he begins to interact with his future parents, setting off a chain of events that could prove personally disastrous if left unremedied. In typical science-fiction-comedy-adventure style, Marty must fix the past if he is to have a future.

Alan Silvestri composed the epic soundtrack to this film, and his music is just one of the many elements that makes this film a beloved and enduring classic.
