Flick Pick: Some Kind Of Wonderful

Some Kind Of Wonderful
(Paramount, 1987)

Another one from the John Hughes body of work, and this time filmed not in suburban Chicago, but in working-class Wilmington and San Pedro in SoCal. Entertaining overall, with the usual soundtrack collection of solid rock picks, and the details in the small parts stand out, like John Ashton's father portrayal, and Elias Koteas' turn as a shaved-head punk. Director Howard Deutch and co-star Lea Thompson liked each other so much they were married two years later.
