In honor of John Hughes and Ferris Bueller's Day Off

I found this wonderful retelling of the whole movie tonight, written by an Aussie. What a refreshing perspective on life! Loved that movie. In our Brave Writer film discussion class, a whole slew of teens led by our intrepid Susanne Barrett, discussed this film in depth (of course, it happens to be her favorite film of all time—natch). Strange timing with Hughes' passing (RIP).

Thanks for posting this link, Julie. We discussed a lot of these points in our Brave Writer at the Movies discussion. You know what the overall favorite film was voted by the students in the course?

"Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?"

I wrote up a big post there also about John Hughes and his movies -- looking back, it seems rather like a eulogy now. :(
