FlickIt! Friday: Cry Baby
July 26 @ 9:15 pm – 11:15 pm
John Waters’ musical ode to the teen rebel genre is infectious and gleefully camp. In 1950s Baltimore, Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker (Johnny Depp) is the baddest boy in his high school, and prim and proper “square” Allison Vernon-Williams (Amy Locane) finds herself uncontrollably drawn to the dreamy juvenile delinquent and his forbidden world of rockabilly music, fast cars, and faster women. Featuring a large ensemble cast that includes Susan Tyrrell, Iggy Pop, Ricki Lake,Traci Lords,Troy Donahue, Joe Dallesandro, Willem Dafoe, and Patricia Hearst. (1990, PG-13, 85mins)
