In 1990’s Home Alone, writer John Hughes (Planes, Trains and Automobiles) turned once more to the travails of holiday travel, but this time from a child's perspective. Somehow combining the themes of child neglect, cartoonishly brutal violence and intrafamilial bullying results in a genuinely hilarious and heart-warming picture, one that became an instant classic. Add in a live performance of John Williams’ score by the San Francisco Symphony, and you’ve got a new holiday tradition, you filthy animal.
