Day 272: TBT – from “Pretty in Pink” (1985)

Disclaimer: this TBT clip contains a single instance of strong language.

It’s prom season again, which seemed like the perfect time to share this classic 80s clip of the last five minutes of John Hughes’ classic high school rom-com Pretty in Pink.

It may not be the greatest – or most important – five minutes of film Hughes ever made, but it’s still my favorite, because the three main characters – including the ginger and the oddball – all share a happy ending (arguably a much bigger deal three decades ago than now).

Unrealistic? Perhaps.

Sometimes, though, you have to turn your back on realism and let yourself get lost in the moment.
