John Cusack with Say Anything

When: Fri., June 14, 7:30 p.m. 2019

Cameron Crowe's Say Anything... redefined romance for disaffected Gen-Xers (spoiler alert: it involves boom boxes and some light stalking). Lloyd Dobbler (John Cusack) is an aimless high schooler who hangs out with female friends Corey and D.C. and kickboxes for fun. Then he encounters class valedictorian Diane (Ione Sky) and decides to pursue her, despite her disapproving father (the great John Mahoney). Lloyd is an eternal optimist, and he won't quit; now, where did he put that boom box? The Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus presents Say Anything... at 7:30 p.m., with John Cusack in attendance. After the film, Cusack will talk about the making of Say Anything... and his long and varied career. Tickets are $39.75 to $69.75.
