LET’S GO TO THE MOVIES: Seven Minutes In Heaven, A Teen Drama Worthy of All Its Angst

While John Hughes might have cornered the market on fabulous teen dramas (and rightly so) there were a few flicks that slipped into the mix that might have been forgotten (or worse, never seen at all) that are worthy of being shelved next to Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and Some Kind of Wonderful (and yes, I’m well aware of Sixteen Candles and the rest of the Hughes oeuvre, I just didn’t want to type them all out).

And one of those highly evolved teen movies is Seven Minutes in Heaven, starring Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), Maddie Corman (The Adventures of Ford Fairlane) and Byron Thames (Johnny Dangerously) as 15 year-old friends who are trying to negotiate the choppy waters of budding adulthood, friend jealousy and the always painful “I-Wanna-Be-More-Than-Friends” rejection from those you want the most.

Take my word for it, it is a gut-wrenching, funny, brilliant tale of the teenage years that should have become a classic (and it also co-stars the dreamy Billy Wirth from The Lost Boys if you need a little more enticing).

So watch the movie after the break then buy it HERE to add to your collection…it’s so worth it.
