Pretty in Pink (1986)

Just a quick shout-out to a movie that I rewatched the other night.  Pretty in Pink is a movie that didn't receive prominent rewards when it was released, but it has an enduring quality because of top-notch performances by young actors and a spot-on portrayal of teen angst and high-school social stresses.  Best of all it presents a strong young girl having a positive and meaningful relationship with her father - something not often addressed in modern movies. 

Hard to believe this was released 30 years ago.  I've embedded the computer scene because I thought some of you might be impressed/amused by the technology.  The lower embed is the standard trailer.
