Michael Lehmann's 1988 film, Heathers, and its 2010 musical counterpart explore the pressures of teenage acceptance and how far its characters are willing to go to receive it. In the musical adaptation, the relationship between Veronica Sawyer and Jason Dean is romanticized in order to adhere to the musical genre, changing the reading of their moral values and decisions as a result.
