Aro Recommended Legend of Billie Jean, The


USA 1985, 95 minutes
Dir. Matthew Robbins
Rating: [M] Contains violence & sexual references
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Youth, Girl-centric


Aroview: Under-rated 80's youth drama about a young woman and her pals who become media-hyped "legends" after an incident involving a gun and lecherous, middle-aged business owner.

This lesser-known teen film sits comfortably alongside the similarly-fashioned dramas of John Hughes, imbued with 'new wave' inflections and the spirit of a strident Pat Benatar anthem. Look out also for raspy tom-boy Yeardley Smith, later to become famous as the voice of Lisa Simpson.
