Less Than Zero (1987)
This is gonna totally date me, but I wanna re-watch this flick! Not like I can relate to coming home from college to a mansion with a 90210 zip code to friends who were junkies or anything, but I'd personally like to explore the theme of coming back home, whether or not it c/would be the same, etc. Re: Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael (1990), Beautiful Girls (1996), Glitter (2001, kinda-sorta, ok, not a very good example), "October Road" (2007, haven't seen, but have heard of it), & the more recent, Young Adult (2011), to name a few.
In addition to exploring this poignant "coming back home" theme, my main '80s crushes (Andrew McCarthy, James Spader) are also in this (loosely based) Bret Easton Ellis adaptation!!! *swoon* Another bonus?
with Susanna Hoffs, my '80s girl-crush! Oh 1987, you were a very good vintage...
