Set in Stevens’ hometown of Sandusky, Ohio, circa 1984, it beautifully captures the moment when both explicit and coded gay content was becoming mainstream.

Trek’ style TV shows have been the obsession of generations of Super His fans.

Well, it’s not. Future fast-talking and foul-mouthed “Veep” co-star Anna Chlumsky (the film’s actual star, Culkin was in a supporting role) is charismatic and sympathetic, just like young women are going through those summers. Suffice it to say that Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis, as adults in her life, provide both warmth and comical comfort.
