Director Martha Coolidge's landmark 1983 comedy marks its thirtieth anniversary this year. Nicolas Cage makes his leading-man debut as Randy, the amiable punk who falls for Julie (Deborah Foreman) when he and his best friend Fred (Cameron Dye) crash a San Fernando Valley party. Coolidge boils down Romeo and Juliet to a power-pop confection about the class tensions between Los Angeles proper and the suburban wonderland on the other side of the hill. Coolidge packs the film with a talented and eccentric cast that includes Elizabeth Daily (her baby-smoky voice would provide a counterpoint to Paul Reuben’s determined arrested development in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and propel several animated series, including Rugrats), Quentin Tarantino repertory player Michael Bowen and, as Julie’s parents who refuse to let the sun go down on the ’70s, Fredric Forrest and Colleen Camp. For this group, as Modern English noted in a song that functions as the unofficial Valley Girl theme, “The future’s open wide.” X-ALT-DESC:
