The Legend of Billie Jean is a 1985 drama about a teenaged girl who tries to get justice for her family. Billie Jean Davy (Helen Slater) and her brother, Binx (Christian Slater), head to a lake outside of Corpus Christi one day to enjoy a day of relaxation and swimming. They get into a tussle with a local bully named Hubie Pyatt (Barry Tubb) that leads to Binx's scooter being stolen. When Binx tries to get the scooter back, Hubie and his friends beat him up badly and almost destroy his scooter. Billie Jean goes to the police, but Detective Ringwald (Peter Coyote) dismisses her, thinking this is just a harmless childhood fight. This prompts Billie Jean to go to Hubie's father's shop to try to get the money to repair the scooter. While there, his father attempts to rape her. As she is running away, Binx accidentally shoots him in the shoulder. Will the police realize who the true criminals are in this situation or are Billie Jean and her brother doomed?moreless
