Screening followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Amy Heckerling, moderated by Kristen Page-Kirby, arts, entertainment and culture writer for the Washington Post Express.

Amy Heckerling invented some of the most memorable characters in American comedy. But her movies add up to much more than just the now-iconic people at their centers. Her films—including major, generation-defining teenage hits Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless, and slapstick riots like Johnny Dangerously and Look Who’s Talking—are uncommonly intelligent mainstream comedies that stand up to (many) repeat viewings, and have acted as models for many of the best contemporary American comedies of our day.

Kristen Page-Kirby covers the arts, entertainment and culture for the Washington Post Express. The Reelist, her weekly column on film, highlights and discusses issues in contemporary cinema. Her freelance writing has appeared in Chesapeake Life, Bust and the Washington Post Magazine. She has appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered Weekend and has moderated panels at the Middleburg Film Festival and at Awesome Con, one of the East Coast’s largest comic book conventions. Her favorite cracker is the Triscuit.

  • "Clueless" is a smart and funny movie, and the characters are in on the joke [...] Heckerling walks a fine line between satire and put-on, but she finds it, and her dialogue could be anthologized.Roger Ebert
  • Alicia Silverstone makes a delectable teen queen in "Clueless," a candy-colored, brightly satirical showcase for her decidedly visual talents.The New York Times
