This post was originally published on this site

Actress Alicia Silverstone played Cher Horowitz in Amy Heckerling’s teen comedy Clueless, which premiered in 1995. It’s one of the greatest teen movies of all time, and when the soundtrack turned 20 I wrote about what made music such an integral part of the film. Cher remains Silverstone’s most iconic role, and though she’s … More »
