“In Life Moves Pretty Fast, Hadley Freeman interviews the producers, directors, writers and stars of cult classics to discover how John Hughes found Molly Ringwald, how the friendship between Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi influenced comedy, and how Eddie Murphy made Americans believe that race can be transcended – and much, much more. Looking back on this cinematic world, she considers how the changes between movies then and movies today say so much about society’s expectations of women, young people, and art – and explains why Pretty in Pink should be put on school syllabuses immediately.
Funny, fascinating, and insightful, Life Moves Pretty Fast is a truly rigorous, heartfelt tour of some of the best-loved movies ever made.”
