Movie Preview: John Hughes Documentary, Don't You Forget About Me

In this little work-of-heart documentary film Don't You Forget About Me, a group of fans travels around on a quest to find and interview beloved director John Hughes. They manage to interview various Hollywood types — mostly actors from Hughes' movies who reflect back on their old director, though others, like Kevin Smith, also add in their two cents. Interestingly, Molly Ringwald apparently refused to participate in the project.

Very soon after Hughes' sudden death last week, a distributor snatched up world rights to the documentary, which Variety describes as "a 75-minute, Roger and Me-like road trip in which Austin-Sadowski and his producers Kari Hollend, Mike Facciolo and Lenny Panzer head to suburban Illinois in their van to try to find the reclusive Hughes. It was made without public funding, something extremely rare in Canadian cinema." So hopefully it will be in theaters before too long.

"No one in my estimation has come close to what John achieved," a voice states toward the end of the trailer. These words ring more poignant now than ever before. To check out the trailer for Don't You Forget About Me,
