CLASSIC TRIPLE-BILL ON GREAT! MOVIES

Friday, November 5th, 2021

Written and directed by John Hughes, FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF (Sunday 7th, 3pm) stars Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller, a high-school student who skips school for a day in Chicago, with his best pal, played by Alan Ruck, and his girlfriend, played by Mia Sara. Ferris Bueller (Broderick) is great at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to have one last blast before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, ‘borrows’ a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day adventure through the streets of Windy City Chicago. On Ferris’ trail is high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch him in the act. Its a much-loved comedy which is fun from start to finish.

Based on Shakespeare’s Taming Of The Shrew, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU (5pm) takes the story from 16thcentury Italy to 90s Seattle suburban teen-dom. The Stratford sisters live under strict rules from their divorce lawyer father – including that popular and beautiful Bianca is forbidden from having a boyfriend until her angsty and cold sister Kat (Julia Stiles) has one of her own. But seeing as Kat has the innate ability to alienate any guy who might be remotely interested in her, this makes Bianca being able to have a boyfriend of her own unlikely. So, when new student Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) falls head over heels for Bianca, he attempts to get bad boy Patrick (Heath Ledger) to date Kat. But grungy rebel Patrick may be the angsty kindred spirit to win Kat’s heart. Finally – every second of every day, from the moment he was born, Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) has been the unwitting star of THE TRUMAN SHOW (6.55pm). The picture-perfect town of Seahaven, which he calls home, is actually a gigantic soundstage. Truman’s friends, family and everyone he meets are actors. He lives every moment under the unblinking gaze of thousands of hidden TV cameras. But discovering the truth is only the beginning. He still must reckon with the god-like powers behind the scenes of the most popular and longest-running documentary-soap opera in history.
