(1989) Written and directed by Cameron Crowe. John Cusack, Ione Skye, John Mahoney. (100 min.) PG-13
Underachieving aspiring kickboxing Lloyd Dobler has the quirky touch of a poet. He is sweetly obsessed with Diane, a brainy girl with an overprotective dad, in this iconic Gen X teen dream. The image of John Cusack and his boom box lifted overhead, blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes,” defined true love for a generation.
“One of those delightful surprises that hit you at the movies when you're least expecting them … Cameron Crowe takes a revolutionary approach to his teen characters—he treats them as if they were human beings” (Washington Post)
