Overview

Veronica Sawyer (Ryder) is the odd-one out in The Heathers, the colour-coordinated, shoulder-padded bitch squad at her high school. A certifiable genius and former good girl, she catches the eye of fellow high-school outsider and silver-tongued Lothario JD. Together, they fantasise about ridding the world of main mean girl Heather Chandler (Walker), and the rest of the preppy bullies that dominate the school – but their fantasies start getting out of hand...

Heathers is an endlessly quotable black comedy that subverted expectations of teen movies forever, and its dreamlike, soft-focus cinematography shines in this restoration.
