verdict
A classic yet dated film that holds a cult following due to the film's highly regarded soundtrack. Nice to see early Sean Penn RIP.
genre Drama | Musical
synopsis Classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he's in for a real case of culture shock.
