Madonna had just scored huge hits with Like a Virgin and Material Girl when she starred in this film as Susan, a Lower East Side-dwelling hipster who becomes an object of fascination to a bored New Jersey housewife (Rosanna Arquette).

A case of amnesia, stolen Egyptian earrings, and mistaken identities: the plot is screwball-farcical but allows for a wild ride through some choice bygone Manhattan locations including legendary four-floor nightclub Danceteria, veteran East Village vintage clothes shop Love Saves the Day, and the Bleeker Street Cinema, where love interest Aidan Quinn works as a projectionist.

And this before mentioning the film’s ra-ra skirts, bangles, pork-pie hats and side-laced can-can boots – and many cameos from downtown mainstays John Turturro, Richard Hell, John Lurie and others.

US 1985 Dir Susan Seidelman 103 min 35mm presentation
