Pity Party Film Club
Clueless | Suitable Women: Films of Female Friendship Vol. 2

Sat 7 September 2019

Pity Party Film Club presents a screening of Amy Heckerling's classic teen comedy Clueless as part of our Suitable Women: Films of Female Friendship Vol. 2 series.

Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school's pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was - and falls for him.

Suitable Women: Films of Female Friendship is a second all-day event showcasing four on-screen depictions of female friendship throughout the decades. Featured films are: Times Square (1980), Fort Tilden (2014), Muriel's Wedding (1994), Clueless (1995).
