I'm not a fanatical devotee of Ferris - like a lot of people seem to be. I just love the idea that kids have their own world with their own prioritie - away from the adult realm.
That's a big validation for kids and maybe a shock to some adults.
Another film kids should see is Peter Brook's 1963 version of Lord Of The Flies - as a warning about how cruel we can be and how quickly we can fall into chaos.
It'd be a great double bill! I'd say Ferris first, then Lord Of The Flies...

Saw a preview and Q&A at the BFI last week. Great little film, looks amazing considering budget was a little over 2 million quid... has some smarts too. Whilst homaging nearly every great sci-fi film of the last 40 years it manages to add it's own, clever take on the genre.
