Ferris Bueller Superfan: Franklin TN Realtor, Simon Hartland
I’m certainly the easiest Ferris Bueller’s Day Off fan to spot in Franklin.
Have you seen me out and about showing homes?
As a 12 year old my world was about to be changed by the charismatic title character – as the movie finished, I told myself, “I want to live life like Ferris Bueller!”. I can’t tell you how many times I watched it in the years that followed but it was enough that I could quote any scene in the movie up one side and down the other.
Fast forward to May 2016 and my obsession was about to be reborn and amplified as my wife saw a story about “Ferris Fest” taking place the following weekend. Suddenly I was surrounded by several members of the original cast and fellow Ferris Bueller nerds – was I in my element? You bet!
Now, an unashamed superfan of the movie you’ll find me dressed in my Ferris Bueller garb each time it is shown at the Franklin Cinema and I’m trying to bring a replica of Ferris Bueller’s bedroom to Franklin – the question is, what would/should I do with it? If I integrated it into my office could I go to work and take the day off every day simultaneously?
Why does this movie speak to me and so many others over 30 years after it’s release? I’m actually considering renting out the downtown Franklin Theatre for a Ferris Bueller evening – maybe we’ll even make it a regularly recurring event, who you would come dressed as? Yourself? Ferris? Cameron? Sloane? Anyone….. anyone…. anyone…. else?
