Molly Ringwald

Born February 18, 1968

Molly Ringwald was one of the Brat ack and one of the IT girls when I was growing up. She played teen angst better than almost anyone else.

Noteworthy

  • Sixteen Candles – Great cast as we see Molly Ringwald’s dream of the perfect Sweet Sixteen disintegrate into embarrassment.
  • The Breakfast Club – This is my favorite of all of those 80s teenage movies. Perfect cast, Perfect script and one of the best endings to a movie ever.
  • Pretty in Pink – Who does Andie choose? Is it Blaine or is it Duckie…?
  • The Stand – Hate this made for TV version of one of Stephen King’s classics if you will but I love it. Relatively true to the book and I think the cast did a good job. Much like the book, I like to revisit often.

I don’t really believe in regret. I think you can always learn from the past, but I wouldn’t want a different life.
