Carny (1980)

A small-town girl joins a traveling carnival. Ok, so what, you say? If you can find this one, watch the hell out of it, it's a gem. 3 great things about this movie? Jodie Foster, Gary Busey, and Robbie Robertson (yes, guitarist from The Band). Gary Busey steals the show outright as an abusive clown in the carnival dunking tank. Robertson is cool and surprisingly good as Patch, the veteran "carny". Jodie Foster is ripe in this one, and about to fall off the tree. The plot won't leave you speechless, but amazingly watchable.
