Francis Ford Coppola is mostly known for directing movies like The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, but in the 1980s, he spent a good amount of time making movies about the 1960s, such as 1983's The Outsiders and 1986's Peggy Sue Got Married.

After fainting during the reunion, Peggy Sue finds herself back in the 1960s, where she is given the opportunity to relive her senior year and see if she can change things with her husband-to-be. Jim Carrey (Mr. Popper's Penguins), in one of his earliest roles, and Joan Allen (The Bourne Ultimatum) co-star.
