I wasn't really much of a John Hughes fans.  Sure, I enjoyed the Breakfast Club and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, but I wasn't one of those people who considered him some type of oracle.  This blog post has changed all that, however.  Now I'm a huge fan.  The power of the internets.

Allison could have been me or any of my friends who literally came of age with his movies. That this well respected filmmaker spent 2 years corresponding with a teen he represented onscreen is extraordinary. Based on his letters and his call Allison meant as much to his life as he did to hers. I was a fan. And now I am an admirer.

Hughes definitely typified an era and genre of filmmaking that even allowed angst-ridden adolescent boys to engage in and enjoy 'coming of age stories'. Talkin' 'bout my generation.
