Sixteen Candles (1984)


88 MIN


Teen angst abounds in this classic comedy written and directed by John Hughes. Samantha Bakers 16th birthday should be perfect and memorable. Unfortunately, her whole family is preoccupied with her sister’s impending wedding and completely forgets Samantha’s big day. To add insult to injury, the school geek won’t stop hitting on her, she has to bring a foreign exchange student with her to the school dance, her visiting grandparents have taken over her bedroom, and she’s sure that the boy of her dreams doesn’t know that she exists.
