HEATHERS (1988) - 25th Anniversary Screening

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Directed by Michael Lehmann / 103 min.

Michael Lehmann and screenwriter Daniel Waters are scheduled to attend and participate in a Q&A after the screening. 

Indie Memphis is proud to host this 25th anniversary screening of one of the most subversive films of the 1980, HEATHERS. Angsty teenage movies set in suburban high schools, like FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH and THE BREAKFAST CLUB, were a staple of the Me Decade. HEATHERS pukes all over the genre like a Heather cheerleader on drain cleaner. Winona Rider stars as Veronica, a popular girl who uses her wits to navigate Westerburg High School’s Darwinian social order. She secretly hates her three best friends, all named Heather, and when a mysterious, black-clad guy named J.D. (Christian Slater) transfers to her school, she finds herself drawn into a Bonnie and Clyde style killing spree of ingeniously faked suicides that play to her spiritually empty town’s every secret prejudice and public hypocrisy. “Dear Diary. My bullshit teen angst has a body count now.” Audiences were not ready for this merciless black comedy when it debuted in 1989, but it became a cult hit on home video and is now regarded as one of the greatest high school movies ever made.
