One man's struggle to take it easy
Pop Up Screens aim to bring brilliant films to cool locations. For this one head to Ravenscourt Park in Hammersmith for a lot of lovely food, amazing popcorn and a fully stocked bar. If you’d prefer to bring your own picnic that’s ok, but it must be noted you will be missing out on burgers from the guy that supplies Harrods. For this one get ready for John Hugues' classic feel-good comedy, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. This 1986 comedy follows annoyingly cool Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick), a high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite what the principal thinks. What follows is a day filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, comedy moments and ever a smashed-up sportscar. If this film doesn't make you wanna cruise into the city and start an en masse impromptu dance routine, nothing will. "Ferris Bueller is a free-spirited romp, a devil-may-care respite from grueling dailiness." – Hollywood Reporter "Great comic set pieces with a seize-the-day vibe." – Film4 Certificate: 12A.
