(John Waters, 1990)

Thu, Aug 13, 2015 9 PM

Although he was already a teen icon from TV’s 21 Jump Street, Johnny Depp had his first starring film role as the titular bad-boy hero of John Waters’s Cry-Baby, a raucous, exuberant satirical ode to the teen rock ‘n’ roll films of the 1950s. This follow-up to his hit Hairspray gives the classic juvenile delinquent archetypes—the bad boy with a heart of gold and the good girl with a wild streak—an affectionate spoofing that’s set, of course, in Waters’s beloved and peculiar Baltimore. (85 mins., 35mm)
