Valley Girl 10/27/18
One of the oldies celebrated by lovers of ’80s fare, Martha Coolidge’s ode to pampered teens in La La Land has aged extremely well. It still fairly representative of reality, but the romantic fairy tale angle is what keeps it afloat. Nicholas Cage’s unguarded vulnerability and Deborah Foreman’s infectious smile win the day — we like these kids, even if they’re somewhat idealized. With fun input from Elizabeth Daily, Heidi Holicker, Michelle Meyrink, Lee Purcell, Colleen Camp & Frederic Forrest, and a ton of extras. On Blu-ray from Shout Select.
