Coming of age via sex and drugs in the San Fernando Valley as observed by British director Adrian Lyne in his feature debut. Not exactly a boxoffice bombshell, but it has come to be considered one of the most realistic portraits of teen life during the‚ era despite the overuse of atmospheric‚ smoke that sometimes makes the high school look like it’s on fire.
