      The 1986 film “Pretty in Pink” is one of my all time favorite films! Nothing can beat a story of romance, friendship, and the social hardships that come with surviving high school. This movie reaches out to so many people of all ages, and it was difficult for me to not get swept away by this heartwarming film.

      Andy, a high school girl with a budding fashion sense, lives on the side of town that the rich kids in her school look down upon. Throughout the film you can see Andy getting into slight altercations as the popular girls with a substantial amount of money tease her for her thrift store outfits. When

      Andy meets, Blaine, one of the rich kids that she and her best friend Duckie dislike, it was so clear that they were falling for one another. But of course things don’t go smoothly for these two seeing as how they are from different sides of the tracks and have to take a great deal of heat from their friends as to why they would want to go out with someone outside of their social class.

      I loved the message that this film portrayed. That just because you are in a social stigma that may be looked at as better than someone else’s, doesn’t mean that you are better them. It also doesn’t ...

      • mean that you should let those people who do try and put you down because of where you are on the social ladder get to you enough to where you don’t follow your heart. Blaine and Andy had rough times getting to be together at prom and being accepted by their peers. They never were really accepted by them, but by the end of the film they had overcome the need to fit in to a social mold and allowed there pull towards each other to bloom.

        Duckie, who was not only Andy’s best friend but the bearer of a secret crush on her, was not keen on her relationship with Blaine.

        He fought her on the subject for a good portion of the film, but when she needed him the most he was there for her, and quickly accepted she and Blaine’s relationship. Duckie was by far my favorite character just because of his surpassing devotion to his friend. He was someone who Andy could depend on, though he wasn’t afraid to let his emotions show when he was angry that his feelings for her beyond friendship were overlooked by her.

        I feel like this movie has really captured a part of high school that we have all been a part of. And by watching Andy and Blaine break that cycle was really inspiring.
