Description

Like Totally 80s!: Break out your dusty spandex and join us for a week of unabashed nostalgia.

For many, John Hughes defined a generation. Has any filmmaker been able to capture the highs and lows of adolescence the way that he did? The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off—Hughes had a knack for pinpointing teenage angst and took it seriously. In Don’t You Forget About Me, a documentary crew sets out on a trip to Hughes’ hometown, talks about their personal connections to his films, and searches for the reclusive man himself. Featuring interviews with famous Hughes alumni and admirers like Kevin Smith and Jason Reitman, journey to the heart of his work in this unique road movie tribute.
