John Hughes made a quartet of films in the 1980s that featured high schoolers. The four films—16 Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off—defined a genre and, in many ways, a generation.
On this Reel Spirituality Podcast series, we’re looking at those films one by one and talking about what makes them great and whether or not they still have relevence today.
We’re taking the films in release order, so next up is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the movie we’ve all seen so many times we can quote along with Ferris and friends as they enjoy Chicago like no one ever has before or since.
