... a pure, cheerfully juvenile blast of blitzkrieg guitar rock, Looney Tunes sight gags, teenage hormones and rebellion against authority because it's there.

Runtime:

Vince Lombardi High School continues to lose its school principles. The students are more concerned with rock 'n' roll than their education until the new principle, Miss Evelyn Togar is hired. She promises to set Vince Lombardi High School straight, and get the students focus back on education. However, a Ramones concert is coming to town, and Riff Randall, the biggest Ramones fan at the high school, plans on getting tickets to the concert in order to give them a song that she wrote entitled "Rock N' Roll High School".

A series of events including Miss Togar taking away Riff's tickets, a record burning and a taking over of the high school by Vince Lombardi High students and the Ramones, leads to a school evacuation by the police and an even more surprising ending!

SIXTEEN CANDLES
Director: 
John Hughes
Country: 
United States
Year: 
1984
Runtime: 
93 minutes

On the eve of her sister's wedding, suburban teenager Samantha (Molly Ringwald) suffers silently as her family forgets her birthday. Even worse, some total dork (Anthony Michael Hall) keeps propositioning her with sophomoric innuendo when she really craves romantic attention from high-school hunk Jake (Michael Schoeffling).

Moving from Samantha's family home as it's invaded by outre relatives to a high-school dance where nothing seems to go her way, this bittersweet teen comedy traces the hopes and disappointments of not only Samantha, but also a host of incidental but memorable characters, from a hapless Japanese exchange student to a prom queen and a posse of barely pubescent nerds. A climactic party scene at which these various strata of young America overcome their rigid hierarchies sets the stage for resolutions both tender and torrid. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

One of the best and most impactful docus of the 1990s, Wim Wenders exhilarating feature is at once a trbute to a pre-Castro generation of musicians as well as a largely bygone genre.

Adelante mujeres logoTonight's nonprofit partner is ADELANTE MUJERES, which provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to marginalized Latina women and families to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community.

"At Adelante Mujeres we recognize that despite the fact that more than 18% of the US population is Latino, they are underrepresented in decision making roles in our society. Latina voices are particularly missing from discussions that guide policies and legislature that directly impacts their lives. We want to change that. Latina women have the capacity to lead and we are working to empower the women and girls in our programs to do just that.

More than 80% of Adelante Mujeres staff identify as Latina and share similar lived experiences as our participants. In fact, some of our staff were once participants in our programs. This ensures that our work maintains it's relevance and deep roots within the community we serve."

DAY OF THE JACKAL MOVIE POSTER
DAY OF THE JACKAL
Director: 
Fred Zinnemann
Country: 
UK | France
Year: 
1973
Runtime: 
143 minutes

In this involving political thriller, a secret French paramilitary organization plans to assassinate French President Charles De Gaulle (Adrien Cayla-Legrand) because of their disagreement with his policies during the Algerian War. They hire a professional killer, known only as "The Jackal" (Edward Fox). The police learn of the plot from an informer, and police investigator Lebel (Michel Lonsdale) cleverly pieces together the clues to the Jackal's identity. The complicated plot uses parallel editing to cross-cut between the details of the Jackal's preparations for the assassination and Lebel's efforts to find him before it is too late. Fred Zinnemann presents the story, faithfully adapted from the book by Frederick Forsyth, with precise, dramatic flair. Edward Fox is coldly alluring as the Jackal. Well acted and directed, Day of the Jackal is a tense and engrossing political thriller with a surprising ending. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

It's like a stoned, slapstick 1984: a nightmare comedy in which the comedy is just an aspect of the nightmarishness.
