Talkin’ ’bout my generation.
John Hughes was a rarity — a writer/director who crafted films in which his teen characters felt real — and it’s a big part of why his films are as popular today as they were during the ’80s.
Everyone has a favorite, whether it’s Ferris or Sixteen Candles.
For me, it’s the tale of five strangers … picked to live in detention … to find out what happens … when people stop being polite … and start getting real.
It’s funny, it’s emotionally brutal, and its talented cast has just one request — don’t you forget about me.
Never did. Never will.
