Before the title of our documentary eerily became "Don't You Forget
About Me", it was "The Hughes Generation.".
Our belief at the genesis of the idea to make a film about Hughes, was
that he was largely behind helping an entire generation (or two)
define themselves/grow into themselves/be okay with their selves
through adolescence and beyond.
One reviewer of our film said that his death did more to cement his
importance than our documentary could ever hope to do. And he was
absolutely right. We are sorry it took his passing for people to truly
appreciate the impact he had/has.
This blog post is devoted to John Hughes, his wife and kids and
everyone who felt a connection to themselves through his movies.
Through the amount of emails and tweets we've received about people
who have enjoyed our documentary and the articles/blog postings we've
read, it's clear there IS a Hughes Generation, and nobody has
Today, let's all raise our arm to John ala Bender in the final frame
of Breakfast Club, and say thanks!
