A Weekend with Amy Heckerling
From Sean Penn’s blond surfer burnout Spicoli to Alicia Silverstone’s adorable Beverly Hills do-gooder Cher, director Amy Heckerling has introduced some of the most memorable characters in American comedy. But her movies add up to much more than just the now-iconic people at their centers. Her films—including major, generation-defining teenage hits Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless, and slapstick riots like Johnny Dangerously and Look Who’s Talking—are uncommonly intelligent mainstream comedies that are endlessly rewatchable. We’re pleased to welcome Heckerling to the Metrograph for this short retrospective of her boisterous, massively successful, and influential films.
