It is directed by Howard Deutch and scripted by John Hughes who also collaborated with Deutch on Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful. It features a small role for Hollywood's latest female star Annette Bening who came to prominence in the thriller, The Grifters and most recently the period drama Valmont.
