SIXTEEN CANDLES 1984 2 Sixteen Candle 1984 Introduction It goes without saying that one of the most disputed issues faced the U.S. is the country’s teenage angst and rape issues. John Hughes (1984) highlighted these issues in his film Sixteen Candles which also raises several questions. The movie is concerned with United States culture of social class, racism and rape which is also likened to the other countries like Britain and Sweden. However, it is critical to note that Hughes’s point of view is a bit biased because the movie seems to concentrate on all teenage bad in the United States. The U.S. rape and social stratification, and racism cultures from Hughes’s perspective are admittedly among the most problematic issues facing any country. The values that define the successful nation are the united of its country. Any country which discriminates its citizen is doomed to violence and backward development. It goes without saying that some states in United States are marred with social discrimination and rape of teenage. Therefore, it is equally possible to define a state’s capacity and values by considering the weirdness of its culture. Hughes’s (1984) documentary shows quite a specific “disastrous” image of the United States. According to the movie, the United State rape and racism cultures were propagated by parents who initiated their children to the act. Hughes’s sociological perception and the image created Such an image is drawn with the assist of Hughes sociological imagination who manages to point out various aspects of the issues. Social status which takes the form of teenage angst has usually been a prevalent variable in the development of youths.
