Here you have out of place Morgan Hiller who is fresh from Connecticut with his family who's dad now has to drive a taxi. He's new at the ruff side L.A. high school.
The gang do their best to make Morgan's life hell at school. But nothing stops him when he finds the one he loves. Frankie who is practically owned by the gang leader. And naturally havoc comes about when Morgan just can't keep away from Frankie. With a little help from 80's tunes and Robert Downey Jr.- Jimmy, its a movie you can't help watch til the end.
I came about this little film on DVD from a library booksale. What a treasure. And its great to see Spader do wonders with a ballet kick. Really, the movie made my weekend.
