Diner is a 1982 coming of age drama about five Baltimore friends, each facing a crossroads in their lives as they gather for a 1959 wedding. Eddie (Steve Guttenberg) has finally agreed to marry his longtime girlfriend even though he prefers spending time with his lifelong best buddies. The guys have been hanging out in the same diner booth for years: Shrevie (Daniel Stern), Boogie (Mickey Rourke), Fenwick (Kevin Bacon), Billy (Tim Daly) and Modell (Paul Reiser). As the guys get ready to celebrate Eddie's wedding, each young man finds himself struggling to enter the adult world. Shrevie does not know how to talk to his wife, Beth (Ellen Barkin). Boogie spends his time aimlessly chasing women. Fenwick's heavy drinking is reaching a critical point. The ambitious Billy cannot convince his girlfriend to marry him. Director Barry Levinson also wrote this affectionate look at the confusions and contradictions of leaving the past behind.
