U.S., 1985, 104 min, Digital, Dir. Susan Seidelman, Rated PG-13, Park Circus
"In the very few moments [Madonna and Arquette] are together on screen, it's like somebody got drunk on Champagne and remade Persona." –Rachel Handler, Vulture
"[This] film immortalises early-career Madonna, shot when she was on the cusp of fame but still something of a New York club kid." –Isabella Trimboli, The Guardian
If you know what to look for, you can find almost anything in the personal ads, including the love of your life! Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction) is irresistible in her first starring role and pop star Madonna gives a marvelously comic performance in this delightful madcap comedy about mistaken identity. Bored New Jersey housewife Roberta (Arquette) fills her days by reading the personals and following an ongoing romance between "Jim" and "Susan" (Madonna); mysterious drifters who appear to lead the kind of free-spirited lives she can only dream about. And dream she does, until the day she actually shows up at the couple's prearranged rendezvous in New York City... and after a bump on the head, a bout of amnesia turns her into Susan and opens the door to intrigue, laughter and love! Directed by Susan Seidelman (Making Mr. Right) with a stellar supporting cast that includes Aidan Quinn, Mark Blum, Robert Joy, Laurie Metcalf, Will Patton, Steven Wright, Peter Maloney, Giancarlo Esposito and John Turturro.
