To wrap up the John Hughes fest, we have the most endearing Hughes creation. 1987, written and produced by John Hughes (but not directed like the rest of his work), and directed by Howard Deutch. And probably for that reason this film has a totally different tone.
Kieth (Eric Stoltz) is into art, works at a gas station, and is best friend with tomboy Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) which doesn't go well with the students of high school. He's odd.
Amanda Jones (Lea Thompson) is the social climber who catches Kieth's eye and when he plucks up the courage to ask her, she's his date next Saturday.
This is a beautiful love story and so serious. I'd have to rank this beside Say Anything when it comes to making the heart flutter. I love it, I love it, I love it!
The music is fab.
Definitely a must watch, Watts is my fave.
