This movie is the romantic hit that featured the famous scene where Lloyd Dobler (played by John Cusack) held a stereo above his head while “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel played. This scene has been referenced and recreated in a number of films since. But what else happened in this classic?
The movie centres around Lloyd’s crush on valedictorian Diane Court (played by Ione Skye) and his mission to go out with her. Although she has no idea who he is when he finally builds up the courage to ask her out, their summer becomes a whirlwind of young love. Although this movie was not as ‘epic’ as I thought it would be, given the legacy it has, it was still a good watch.
