Heathers

As dark satire goes, Heathers is in a league all its own. Easily dismissed as a teen angst flick, its depths are much darker and deeper.

Heathers is about how easily you can fall and still think you’re standing.

“You were nothing before you met me. You were playing Barbies with Betty Finn. You were a Bluebird. You were a Brownie. You were a Girl Scout Cookie.”~Heather Chandler

This sinister comedy spotlights issues of bullying, teen suicide, and the dangers of peer pressure.

Underlying theme? How completely self-absorbed people can be. How spoiled and narcissistic. Where they see their own world and issues, but have no wider vision of how other people are feeling, or suffering, or what they need.

Slater and Ryder are beyond compare and repair.

Severe, jagged, funny, pathetic, edgy.

Hard to believe it’s been 25 years.

    This is a great I loved this show for years! Winona Ryder and Christian Slater make this movie such a great one. Teens in high school have all kinds of problems, and these two help make it all worse…..

  2. This is a really good movie 🙂 I think Mean Girls kinda developed from this, my daughter really liked Mean Girls so I bought her Heathers and she was like — wow!

      1. Do you watch Homeland or Ripper Street? Both superb. The actress who plays Carrie in Homeland is perfect, she is amazing.
