Los Alamos 

 

Few movies capture honestly what it is like to be a teenager, but “Say Anything” is one of them. The 1989 film, rated PG-13, will show at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Mesa Public Library. Admission is free.

 

In this cult classic, senior Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack) is in love with class valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye), a girl so far out of his league that on graduation day, rather than ask her to pose with him for a photo, he lurks near her while his friend surreptitiously snaps a shot.
