Real Genius (1985)--Sabotaging an evil professor's plan to turn a college geek's (Val Kilmer) lab project into a high-powered military weapon, Meyrink plays Jordan, a fast-talking, card-carrying Mensa member/insomniac. With her Noxzema-fresh face and uneven bob cut, she won the pimply hearts of smitten nerds everywhere!
Nice Girls Don't Explode (1987)--Stretching a metaphor like silly putty, Meyrink plays April Flowers, an eager teen who literally and telekinetically ignites fires when she is sexually aroused. A joke that never tires, Fluffy the family cat is repeatedly caught in the crossfire.
Permanent Record (1988)--With a soundtrack by Joe Strummer and a remarkably textured performance from Keanu Reeves, director Marisa Silver pieces together a moody and ultra-realistic tale about a tight group of high school friends trying to patch together their innocence after their talented best friend commits suicide. As Reeves' girlfriend, M.G., this proves to be a symbolic last role for Meyrink--gone, but hardly forgotten.
