Roll with your homies, grab your favorite Baldwin, and catch Clueless on the big screen at The Frida! Amy Heckerling’s smarter-than-your-average-teen-comedy (what did you expect from an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma?) was a surprise hit in 1995, a throwback to John Hughes high school comedies that blended side-splitting laughs, invested performances by leads sharing palpable chemistry, and consistently clever writing into that rare teen comedy that was embraced by both audiences and critics alike, ultimately taking home the National Board of Review’s Best Screenplay award. In her star-making performance, Alicia Silverstone stars as shallow, rich, and ultra-popular Cher (Alicia Silverstone), riding the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale along with best friend Dionne (Stacey Dash). A skilled matchmaker, Cher coaxes two teachers into dating each other, and emboldened by her success, takes on a new challenge – to help transform hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) into a popular girl. Tai’s sudden rise in popularity however leaves Cher in turmoil, as she wrestles with her feelings for her ultra-hep friend Christian, and her developing feelings towards someone much closer to her.
