INVINCIBLE - THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN Showcasing Pat BenatarÂ's Hit Musical Plays Silverlake, 5/25
"Fair is fair!" That is the rebel-rousing cry of sultry 18 year-old Billie Jean Davy and her band of teenage misfits; on the run from the law and in search of truth, justice and a kick-ass haircut! It's the summer of 1985, Corpus Christi, Texas. Local bully, rich-kid, Hubie Pyatt, has maliciously vandalized the brand new Honda Scooter belonging to dirt poor Binx Davey: a purchase made by the 16 year-old trailer park resident with insurance money left to him by his dead father. (Are you in tears yet?!) It's up to big sis, Billie, to convince Hubie's sleazeoid father to cough up the $608 for repairs. Fair is fair, after all!
But things don't go as planned. After several sweaty moments in Mr. Pyatt's back room, a gunshot, and a charge of armed robbery; Billie and Binx are furiously fleeing the state with fellow trailer park comrades in tow: 16 year-old, boy-crazy, Ophelia Bray, and precocious tomboy, 14 year-old, Putter Jacks; as well as a more than willing hostage: 17 year-old cutie, Lloyd Muldaur, son of District Attorney, Lloyd Sr. They're dodging the law, fighting for their rights, saving abused children, and creating eye-popping fashion statements wherever they go! This is the setup of the 1985 cult hit film THE LEGEND OF Billie Jean.
