Oh my god, I am totally buggin’

Experience the 1995 “Clueless” in a new light in our film event series “Naughty Adaptations”  Your literary host, RJ Jenkins, will open up the film by leading a spirited discussion about the connection between Clueless and Jane Austen’s 1815 novel Emma.  The “Naughty Adaptation” film event series is about how high-brow texts become irreverent films. This series is in partnership with Marion Literacy Council.

About the Film:
Shallow, rich and socially successful Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is at the top of her Beverly Hills high school’s pecking scale. Seeing herself as a matchmaker, Cher first coaxes two teachers into dating each other. Emboldened by her success, she decides to give hopelessly klutzy new student Tai (Brittany Murphy) a makeover. When Tai becomes more popular than she is, Cher realizes that her disapproving ex-stepbrother (Paul Rudd) was right about how misguided she was — and falls for him.
