In this classic 1980s film, Diane Court is a high school senior with a bright future. She is the class valedictorian, and she has received a scholarship to study in England. Her father, James, to whom she is very close, is proud of his daughter. But when Diane begins dating an underachieving loser, Lloyd Dobler, James begins to worry about the relationship. At the urging of her father, Diane ends things with Lloyd, who spends the summer pining after her. As the end of the summer approaches, Diane learns that her "perfect" father is less than perfect; he is in trouble with the IRS. She realizes that it is okay not to be perfect all the time.
