While most of the world put their focus on Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard relationship feud, let’s reminisce on Depp’s rockabilly-esque teen-flick, Cry-Baby.
The film centers on a group of delinquents who refer to themselves as “drapes’ and their interaction with the rest of the town and its other subculture, the “squares”, in 1950s Baltimore, Maryland. “Cry-Baby” Walker (Johnny Depp), a drape, and Allison (Amy Locane), a square, disturb Baltimore society by breaking the subculture taboos and falling in love. The film shows what the young couple has to overcome to be together and how their actions affect the rest of the town.
A box office failure during its initial release, the film has subsequently become a cult classic and spawned a Broadway musical of the same name which was nominated for four Tony Awards.
I’m just out for a little fun
But I’m guilty till I’m twenty-one
I guess I’m doin’ time for being young
