i had coffee this morning with my dear friend and mentor Howard Deutch. he is an amazing director and has directed such movies as Some Kind Of Wonderful, Grumpier Old Men, My Best Friend’s Girl (i was in that one) and Pretty In Pink, to name a few! i feel very lucky to have him as a mentor because he’s smart, saavy and grounded. talking to him today and thinking about how i will be couch-ridden in a day (wisdom teeth removal on thursday) reminded me of what a cool movie Pretty In Pink is and how it should be one of the many i will watch in my vicodin stupor.
i love Molly Ringwald’s look in general and this movie captured her quirkiness so well! i love how her character made all her own clothes. so say what you will about the ’80’s but this movie sure did make sense of it to me. hello men’s blazer trend back again!
