Valley is very good simply because director Martha Coolidge obviously cares about her two lead characters and is privileged to have a couple of fine young performers, Nicolas Cage and Deborah Foreman, to make the audience care.

As the title suggests, she’s a definitive valley girl, mouthing all the nonsensical catch phrases recently popularized in song and book. He’s a Hollywood punker who normally wouldn’t venture over the hills into the square valley, except to crash a party where they meet.

Their blazing romance, which shocks her high-school friends, ultimately becomes too socially threatening for Foreman and she cuts it off.

For a change, there aren’t any cartoon problem adults on hand as there often are in these pictures.
