We kick off Gen-X Movie Month with a look at the cult classic, Heathers! Sasha joins Erin to discuss their first impressions of the film. the characters, why the film is such a portrait of Gen-X, discuss how well, or not so well, the film tackles the dark subject matter, and ponder if there is ever a good way to talk about these things. Trigger Warnings: Suicide, teen violence, school violence, sexual assault, gaslighting, abusive relationships, eating disorders, homophobia, and fatphobia.
