Monday Comedy Madness: Valley Girl (1983)
MGM – Monday 26 November, 8.30pm
Julie, a clean cut Valley girl falls for Randy, a punker from the other side of the Hollywood Hills. Her friends disapprove of the leather-clad dude and push her into going to prom with her preppy Valley boyfriend, Tommy. But love-struck Randy can’t let Julie go! A delightful 80s classic featuring a brilliant performance from a young Nic Cage as well as a, like, totally cool soundtrack including The Plimsouls, Josie Cotton, The Psychedelic Furs, and more.
Director: Martha Coolidge (Real Genius, Rambling Rose, TV Series Sex And The City).
Starring: Nicolas Cage, Deborah Foreman, Cameron Dye, Elizabeth Daily, Michael Bowen, Frederic Forrest.
“…this movie is a little treasure, a funny, sexy, appealing story of a Valley Girl’s heartbreaking decision: Should she stick with her boring jock boyfriend, or take a chance on a punk from Hollywood?” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
