This Friday: Ferris Beuller’s Day Off (and Some Related Reading)
This Friday, we’ll see Ferris Beuller’s Day Off, a famous film from the 1980s about a teenager skipping school. We’ll mainly talk about culture, criticism, and satire, but there is an article I would like you to read related to this, by Robert Epstein and titled “The Myth of the Teen Brain.”
If you don’t get to read it until after the film, that’s fine, but please do read it before you blog about the film. I will be bringing up Epstein’s research in my little talk prior to the film.
