Kevin Smokler's book, Brat Pack America, releases on October 11, 2016. He examines the era/genre of 1980's American teen movies and how they impacted and were impacted by their physical shooting locations. This is a list of the movies Smokler examined in his road trip through the movies, from the proto-teen eighties movies of the late seventies through the last gasp of 1989, plus a few stragglers that get a significant mentions for comparison (in order of mention in the text).
(In the interests of full disclosure, Kevin is a friend. He's a pretty rad dude.)
