Pretty In Pink (1986)

The first-born, Fraternal twin to Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) is just as vibrant—A veritable and beloved classic, well-worth its place in the zeitgeist.

Regan Humphrey

Creative and independent high school senior, Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald), is constantly taunted and teased by her rich and popular classmates. Between supporting her down and jobless father and fending off the affections of her childhood friend, Duckie (Jon Cryer), she’s not feeling particularly enthusiastic about prom—until Blane McDonough (Andrew McCarthy), a handsome, kind, and aloof senior asks her out. The dissimilarity of their economic statuses stirs the ire and prejudice of their respective friend groups. Both Andie and Blane will have to overcome their own reservations for their relationship to work.
