Veronica (Winona Ryder) is an honorary member of the elite
high school clique made up of three other girls called Heather.
The problem is that, as much as Veronica enjoys being associated
with the in-crowd, she recognises the horror of the 'Heathers' -
their colour-coordinated codes and their calculating cruelty - and
actually wishes them dead.
Made in the last year of the 80's, this film is billed "The teen movie to end all teen movies" and goes far beyond the conventions of most other teen movies. It is more serious and although perhaps a tad far-fetched it is thought-provoking and compelling viewing. Well worth seeing.
