We’re, like, freaking out because Hollywood Suite archival producer and film programmer Alicia Fletcher is with us this week to talk about Martha Coolidge and her bitchin’ 1983 flick VALLEY GIRL! Listen in as we flip right out over this California-set riff on Romeo and Juliet, including its seriously cute cast (Deborah Foreman + Nic Cage 4 ever!), rad soundtrack (we melt for “I Melt with You”!), and totally tubular costumes. Why is this literally perfect movie not talked about as much as John Hughes’s entire (and, honestly, grody on reflection) filmography? The patriarchy can “Fuck off, fer sure! Like, totally!”
We Really Like Her! is produced by Danita Steinberg and Emily Gagne, edited by Danita Steinberg, with a theme song by Emily Milling.
