The sports-fueled 1980 drama-romance Spetters is an early entry from by filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Showgirls) when he was still make movies in his native Holland.

Rien, Eef and Hans are three young guys stuck in an industrial town on the outskirts of Rotterdam. They couldn’t be more different except for one thing: their shared passion for motorcycle racing, which each sees as his ticket to a better life. But a deeper passion will soon rule each of their lives, when a sexy, ambitious blonde (Renée Soutendijk, The 4th Man) comes between them and provokes unforeseen events that will rock their worlds.

Penned by Gerard Soeteman (Soldier of Orange) and co-starring Rutger Hauer (Flesh + Blood) and Jeroen Krabbé (The Fugitive), this impassioned coming-of-age drama is presented by Kino Lorber in an unrated director’s cut and with a new 4K restoration.
