Remembering John Hughes

John Hughes, the American filmmaker that turned the teen "coming of age film" into an art form, died yesterday. Films like "Breakfast Club", "Sixteen Candles" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" not only defined pop film in the 1980s, they also redefined a genre mired in the Porky's-style "losing your virginity" film formula of the time. John Hughes introduced an entirely new generation of teen actors including: Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Matthew Broderick, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson. As we say goodbye to one of the great auteurs of the teen angst movie, drop us a line on your favourite moment from any John Hughes film.
