It's rare for a Hollywood movie to have a female director, especially in the 1980s. In her first feature film, Lisa Gottlieb, makes a film that could be abut the sexism and harassment women faced in pursuing their professions, but instead, makes it a learning experience for the gorgeous, popular girl to know what it's like to walk in the shoes of a teen boy. Hosts Tara McNamara, Gen X, and Riley Roberts, Gen Z, look at the likeable film through today's lens while sharing perspective on high school life today.
