Directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg (best known for her amusing Lifetime sendup “A Deadly Adoption”) and released by Orion Classics, this new take on the “Valley Girl” mythos — basically, Romeo and Juliet for Sunset Strip punks and Sherman Oaks mallrats — was first announced way back in 2016. That’s when Goldenberg and star Jessica Rothe (of “Happy Death Day” franchise fame) signed on to craft a reboot that added in musical elements to its star-crossed lovers story, a radical twist on a cult classic.
