Gets my vote for Movie of the 80's.
23 October 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Reckless is one of my all-time favorite movies, Aidan Quinn is an awesome talent and should be more well known by now. This is 'Rebel without a Cause' for the 80's generation. Great music, excellent script, terrific acting and beautifully filmed.
