“What is your damage, Heather?”
Long before MEAN GIRLS… There was HEATHERS.
Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty shine in one of the 1980s most infinitely quotable films, a viciously funny yet insightful black comedy that satirizes the messy (and sometimes deadly) politics of female friendship, young love, cliquedom, and croquet during those oh-so-awkward high school years.
“Dark, cynical, and subversive, HEATHERS gently applies a chainsaw to the conventions of the high school movie — changing the game for teen comedies to follow.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
“HEATHERS locates the emotional totalitarianism lurking in a prom queen’s heart.” (Time Magazine)

HEATHERS (Michael Lehmann, 1988 / 103 mins / 14A) | Veronica half-heartedly tries tries to be part of the cliquey ‘in crowd’ of her school, and along the way meets a dark “bad boy” who teaches her a more devious game of social politics.
