VALLEY GIRL (SPECIAL GUESTS)
Just added! Valley Girl director Martha Coolidge, producer Andy Lane, co-stars Michael Bowen, Josie Cotton, E.G. Daily, Lee Purcell, Heidi Holicker, Colleen Camp, Chris Murphy, and Camille Calvet, musicians Josie Cotton, Gary Myrick, and The Plimsouls’ David Pahoa & Lou Ramirez, plus composers Scott Wilk and Marc Levinthal will join us IN PERSON, schedules permitting, on Saturday, May 18th, to talk about their ’80s classic!
It’s a preppies-vs-punkers, suburbs-vs-Hollywood heart thumper as this hoodrat Romeo and Juliet prom-com perfectly captures the slang-riddled radness of SoCal life in the ‘80s as seen through director Martha Coolidges’ slyly satirical lens. A young, seriously hot Nicolas Cage plays Valley Girl princess Deborah Foreman’s opposites-attract punk object of desire. But can their new wave romance survive societal pressures and shallow friends? Like, oh my god, totally fer sure! Electric chemistry between the two leads, a tubular supporting cast (E.G. Daily! Michael Bowen!) and pitch-perfect dialog make this Los Angeles love adventure a timeless classic. And the fab soundtrack will have you bopping along to Sparks, Modern English and other bitchen KROQ hits!
