SCREENING: FOXES @ RED BULL MUSIC FESTIVAL
FRIDAY FEB 15
(doors at 11pm)
PART OF THE RED BULL MUSIC FESTIVAL
Several years before his blockbuster Flashdance, Adrian Lyne began his career directing Cherie Currie, The Runaways’ cherry bombshell frontwoman, in a magnetic on-screen debut performance, alongside Jodie Foster, Scott Baio, Sally Kellerman, and Randy Quaid. In this unexpectedly empathetic coming-of-age tale, four best friends skip school, cruise Hollywood Boulevard, and hit flashy trashy rock concerts, eventually finding themselves in all kinds of teenage trouble. The film was produced by L.A. glam rock/disco label Casablanca Records and features several songs from their stable of stars (Donna Summer, Giorgio Moroder, Cher). Keep an eye out for a brief cameo from an awkward pre-teen Laura Dern, and Robert Romanus in a role that is suspiciously similar to his more memorable Mike Damone from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Can’t stay at home, can’t stay in school, but with FOXES you can experience the gritty, glittery L.A. you’ve been waiting for!
