“Sly humour and an appreciative ear for the demotic improve of teenage chat completes an attractive package.” – Derek Adams, Time Out
Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald) is ready to make the most of her sweet sixteenth birthday ... if only someone in her family would remember it! She’s your average teen, enduring creepy freshmen, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the “Big Blonde on Campus” who stands between her and the boy of her dreams. The directorial debut of John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Weird Science), Sixteen Candles is a warm-hearted coming-of-age comedy that helped define a generation.
