Teenage Angst from John Hughes
Sixteen Candles · The Breakfast Club · Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Sixteen Candles (1984), Friday, October 5 – Written and directed by former Chicago ad man, John Hughes, this is the first of a veritable onslaught of teen angst comedies that gave the world “The Brat Pack.” Molly Ringwald stars as Samantha “Sam” Baker, a girl facing numerous emotional challenges on her sixteenth birthday. Her family, focused on the wedding of her older sister, Ginny, forgets her birthday; she’s in love with senior Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling), who she thinks doesn’t know she exists; and she’s pursued by a geeky freshman, Ted (Anthony Michael Hall). Ringwald and Hall both won Young Artist Awards as “Best Young Actress in a Motion Picture” and “Best Young Actor in a Motion Picture” for their roles in the film, becoming the first and only juvenile performers in the history of the Young Artist Awards to win the Best Leading Actress and Best Leading Actor awards for the same film.

The Breakfast Club (1985), Friday, October 12 – Known as the “quintessential 1980’s film,” this coming-of-age comedy-drama film was written, produced, and directed by John Hughes, starring Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. The storyline follows five teenagers, each members of different high school cliques, who together spend a Saturday in detention facing a strict disciplinarian and come to realize that they are all more than their respective stereotypes. The film received critical acclaim and critics consider it one of the greatest high school films of all time, as well as one of Hughes’ most memorable and recognizable works. In 2016, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), Friday, October 19 – Another classic teen movie written, co-produced, and directed by John Hughes, and co-produced by Tom Jacobson, this film stars Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller, a high-school slacker who spends a day off from school, with Mia Sara and Alan Ruck. Ferris regularly “breaks the fourth wall” to explain techniques and inner thoughts. Released by Paramount Pictures in June, the film became one of the top-grossing films of the year, receiving $70.1 million over a $5.8 million budget, and was enthusiastically acclaimed by critics and audiences alike. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
