Pretty in Pink

The late John Hughes wrote the 1986 teen hit Pretty in Pink for his leading lady, Molly Ringwald. (Howard Deutch directs.) The film is as much about class as adolescence, as Ringwald’s princess from the wrong side of the tracks is asked to the senior prom by rich prince Andrew McCarthy. Harry Dean Stanton gets a rare, warm turn as her doting father. Viewers are required to wear pink and encouraged to wear their pajamas. (PG-13) BRIAN MILLER
