In Your Eyes

Say Anything is a typical teen 80s movie about a boy who falls in love with a girl who is out of his league. John Cusak plays Lloyd Dobler, a run of the mill guy who doesnt really have anything special going for him. Ione Skye plays Diane Court, a beautiful, smart girl who lives with her single father, John Mahoney, and is getting ready to go to college. Lloyd calls and asks Diane to a party after graduation, and to his and everybody else's surprise, she says yes. At the party, Diane talks to his friends, and finds out that he is actually a pretty good guy. She ends up falling for him; however, he over-bearing father does not approve of the romance. She is supposed to be going to England for a summer scholarship program and her father does not want her to jeopardize the opportunity. They typical image from this film is Llyod standing outside of her window with a jukebox overhead playing Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes. Llyod's extravagant, yet romantic gesture gets her attention and makes her realize that she truly does love him and wants to be with him.

A film fit for an ethical examination.
