CLUELESS
1995, Paramount, 97 min, USA, Dir: Amy Heckerling

Writer-director Amy Heckerling’s sleeper hit plucks the privileged protagonist from Jane Austen’s 19th century novel Emma and plants her in a Beverly Hills high school of today. Rich, beautiful and popular, Cher (Alicia Silverstone in a star-making performance) is used to getting what she wants. When she gets a bad grade, she just plays matchmaker to her teacher, his grading standards relax, and the problem is solved. But when Cher teams with her BFF (Stacey Dash) to work similar magic with the tragically unhip new girl (Brittany Murphy), the effort backfires. Repairing relationships (and power-shopping) to get back on top of the social ladder, Cher winds up with a boyfriend of her own in this effervescent teen comedy. With Paul Rudd.
