Some Kind of Wonderful

It’s not my favorite of the Hughes films (and he produced/wrote this, didn’t direct it), but it’s still a film I enjoyed re-watching. Sure, everything in this movie is telegraphed a mile ahead, but hey, the music is good, and I like seeing these actors together, and at that age. Mary Stuart Masterson was especially great — and strangely, it feels like she never really had much of a career outside of this, at least that I can remember.
