Hadley Freeman: Life Moves Pretty Fast

Things to do, Talks and lectures

Time Out says

Join author and journalist Hadley Freeman as she explores the lessons we learned from 80s movies.

For Freeman, American movies of the 80s have everything, with teen rebellion in 'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off' and 'The Breakfast Club', the comedic 'Ghostbusters' and 'Back To The Future', learnings in sex from the likes of 'Splash' and 'About Last Night', light-hearted family fun with 'Big' and 'ET', plus the ultimate adventures of 'Die Hard' and 'Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom'.

In this talk, she explains how these cult classics are the films that helped shape her view of the world, from adult relations to expectations of life to come, stopping off at talking points like society's changing expectations of women, young people and art.

Definitely, definitely one to get yourself down to.
