Event Details

Guardian writer Hadley Freeman is convinced you can learn everything you’ll ever need to know from Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Top Gun, Die Hard, 9½ Weeks, Splash, The Big Chill, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Beverley Hills Cop. She explains why 80s movies are better than 90s films and talks genres, tropes, key players and how the friendship between Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi influenced the evolution of comedy. She considers how the changes between movies then and movies today say so much about society’s changing expectations of women, young people and art, and explains why Pretty in Pink should be put on school syllabuses immediately.
