Day 23

Movie: Heathers
Starring: Winona Ryder, Christian Slater
Format: DVD

Plot: Veronica is part of the popular girls at school, all who are named Heather expect herself.  She falls for the new boy at school who at first seems like every other rebel.  Soon, their discontent turns into murder.

This film was considered very controversial when it first came out, and given the subject matter of suicide and murder it's no wonder.
Even though, this is done as a comedy drawing a spotlight on the  way teenagers treat each other; it still has a solid message of the need to stand up to bullies and respect who you really are.

Slater is so striking in this film with his trenchcoat and jet black hair that you can't help but want to fall for his psycho-tendencies. You keep thinking there is a redeemable quality to him but in the end there just isn't.

What do I think I learned from this film?
If you can live through high school then you're stronger then you think.
