I apologize for posting so many stories about John Hughes today, but like many of you, growing up a child of the 1980′s, his films meant a lot to me. And his passing has unearthed a bunch of content that I want to share with you guys. /Film friend and Totally Rad Show co-host Dan Trachtenberg forwarded this link (from Kat Arnett) to a movie trailer for an independent documentary titled Don’t You Forget About Me.

Watch the trailer after the jump.
