From the fictional towns of Hill Valley, CA, and Shermer, IL, to the beautiful landscapes of the Goondocks in Astoria and the time of your life dirty dancing resort still alive and well in Lake Lure, NC, '80s teen movies left their mark not just on movie screen and in the hearts of fans, but on the landscape of America itself. Like few other eras in movie history, the '80s teen movies has endured and gotten better with time. In Brat Pack America, author Kevin Smokler gives virtual tours of your favorite movies while also picking apart why these locations are so important to these movies.
Including interviews with actors, writers, and directors of the era, and a Trapper Keeper full of interesting facts about your favorite '80s movies, Brat Pack America is a must for any fan of The Breakfast Club and Back to the Future, of Ferris Buellers Day Off, Pretty in Pink, and Dead Poets Society. Smokler went to Goonies Day in Astoria, OR, took a Lost Boys tour of Santa Cruz, CA, and in the present visited retro arcades, movie theaters and record stores. His exploration of highways and main streets of Brat Pack America remind us why we loved the teen movies of the '80s so much and, three decades later, still do.
