Synopsis

SIXTEEN CANDLES, 1984, Universal, 93 min. Dir. John Hughes. Molly Ringwald plays Samantha Baker, whose family completely forgets her 16th birthday amid the insanity of her older sister’s wedding. Over the course of a long night, Samantha pines for the boy of her dreams (Michael Schoeffling), befriends the class dork (Anthony Michael Hall) and does her best to avoid a lusty foreign exchange student (Gedde Watanabe). <br /> THE BREAKFAST CLUB, 1985, Universal, 97 min. Dir. John Hughes. Hughes’ 1980s string of teenage comedy-dramas reached its apex with this study of five misfit kids (Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall) who learn to open up as they undergo a daylong Saturday detention. Memorable soundtrack includes Simple Minds’ “Don’t You (Forget About Me).”
