Beyond Clueless

The glut of teen movies that sprung from John Hughes' late eighties run of brat pack successes - Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, all gave us an appetite for American teen freedom - watching kids of 15 drive cars, deceive their parents, go to keg parties - it was a long way from the No Name! Disco, sharing a naggin between 8, and sniggering at the sole, daring couple shifting on the makeshift dancefloor in the parish hall. This doc looks at the heyday of the 90s high school film - inspired by Hughes, but brought into a Wolfgang Puck-eating world of its own by Heckerling & co., the genre was at once intellectualised, with high school renditions of Shakespeare and Austen, and finally spoofed, until the noughties gave way to post-modern realism, with Mean Girls - satire dressed up in a jock jacket. Expect nostalgia for your school days that never were.../ Kate Coleman
