Last month, John Hughes passed away and left a legacy of high school experience films and influenced how they would be made from then on. Every kid that was born in the 80’s feels a connection to the high school situations and labels that he so perfectly conveyed in celluloid—probably even more than the kids that were actually <strong>IN</strong> high school in the 1980’s did.
