Overview
Think everyone over 17 has forgotten what it's like to be 16? Filmmaker John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty in Pink) hasn't. Now Hughes delivers another funny, savvy, crowd-pleasing look at adolescence in this story about a high school misfit (Eric Stoltz–Mask), who falls so head-over-heels for the senior class siren that he's blind to the charms of his beautiful and devoted best pal (Mary Stuart-Masterson–Fried Green Tomatoes). Some fun, some heartache, Some Kind of Wonderful!
