XANADU is one of the 1980s biggest flops, but it is also rather magnificent. It's a cult classic with passionate fans who love the music, the style, the dance numbers, and the cheesy special effects. Tara McNamara and Riley Roberts look at the Olivia Newton-John-Gene Kelly roller disco musical from the Gen X and Gen Z perspective while also looking at the subtle message the film sends about the role of the ideal woman in 1980.
