John Hughes (1950 – 2009)

John Hughes, the director of Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink, has died at 59. Hughes was the voice of a generation with his 80s films. The last film he directed was 1991’s Curly Sue and he had been somewhat prolific and essentially retired except for occasionally producing a film.

Everyone is talking about his work is the voice of the 80s, but I’m a child of the 90s. Among my friends, his films are some of our favorites. Hughes’ film might be a product of the 80s, but his work continue to be the most loved and definitive teens films of any generation.

Enjoy this tribute to the eight films John Hughes directed.
