VINTAGE FILM Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

30 years after James Dean, Ferris Bueller redefined (and refined) rebellion: Stealing a Ferrari to visit an art museum, dine on pancreas, and attend a cultural parade – all while remaining an angel in his parents’ eyes? A high school senior without a car or a letter jacket, Ferris teaches us all of the right reasons to be popular. Homages to the film’s minor characters – Ben Stein’s teacher, Charlie Sheen’s delinquent, Edie McClurg’s secretary – return to our screens year after year (recognize anyone in Stranger Things?), but there’s never been another Ferris.
