Vision Quest

This 1985 movie directed by Harold Becker stars Matthew Modine as a high school wrestler who is going to make his mark by starving himself down two weight classes to wrestle Shute, the state champion at 168 lbs. Conveniently, he gets a gorgeous New Jersey girl (Linda Fiorentno) to move into his house and eventually loses his virginity to her right before pinning Shute in the climactic scene. The movie sounds cheesy in my description of it, but I've always liked films like this. A good soundtrack of 80s pop music.
