Aug. 13: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 7:30 p.m.
USA 1986 (1 hr., 43 min.) Rated PG-13
Comedy in English at Matilija Auditorium
Cutting class is a time-honored American high school tradition, and no other movie quite encapsulates that giddy experience as well as this one. With Matthew Broderick taking on the cocky lead of Ferris, this 1986 film lives in the revolutionary heart of audiences that responded so joyfully to one character’s insistence on living life to the fullest before graduating into the workaday world that awaits us all.
Director John Hughes reportedly wrote the film in a week, and he calls Ferris his love letter to Chicago, where much of the film was shot before production moved to Southern California. The story takes place within one day’s time, and a certain 1961 Ferrari GT makes an appearance, recently sold at auction for over $16 million. With actors Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jeffrey Jones, Jennifer Grey, Ben Stein and Charlie Sheen, this is one movie experience to cheer the soul.
