When it was first released in 1988, ‘Heathers’ offered a dark and original take on the traumas of high school as well as proving to be a breakout vehicle for its stars, Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. Often imitated but never bettered, its director, Michael Lehmann, joins us to discuss its impact and legacy in its 30th year.
