Pretty in Pink:
Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) is a bright, sensitive girl with a second hand wardrobe and three men in her life. First there's her father (Harry Dean Stanton). He doesn't work and has been going steadily downhill since his wife left him. There's also Ducky Dale (Jon Cryer). He's a pal of Andie's and he's got an intense, unrequited crush on her. Then there's Blane McDonough (Andrew McCarthy), a cute, rich preppie. He and Andie come from opposite sides of the tracks. So when they fall in love, the differences between them (he drives a BMW and she's ashamed of where she lives) brings problems to their romance. This 80s teen movie written by John Hughes features a terrific rock score.
Cher and Dionne are best friends who live in Beverly Hills. They are popular, rich, pretty, and charming. One day, they spot a new girl at school, Tai, and decides to do a makeover on her. They are very successful, but Cher realizes that she needed a makeover herself in a spiritual way. With this makeover, she learns about caring for others, going through pain, and love.
Some Kind of Wonderful:
Think everyone over 17 has forgotten what it's like to be 16? Filmmaker John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty In Pink) hasn't. Here, Hughes delivers another funny, savvy, crowd-pleasing look at adolesence in this story about high-school misfit Eric Stoltz, who falls so head-over heels for the senior class siren (Lea Thompson) that he's blind to the charms of his beautiful and devoted best pal (Mary Stuart Masterson). Some fun, some heartache, Some Kind Of Wonderful!
