    John Hughes High School reunion
    John Hughes' film message is simple: The kids are all right. His young heroes were certainly confused, frustrated and angry, but they ultimately proved steely enough to triumph over the often cruel peer pressure and stifling confinement of suburban life....

    Hughes was a master of light, right notes

    Helen Hunt returns to the limelight
    We haven't seen much of Helen Hunt in recent years. That's by choice, she says -- her choice, not Hollywood's. "I've been home with my daughter, which is where I want to be," she says while at the Miami International Film Festival. And it turns out,...
