One of the most charming movies of the 80s! Bored New Jersey housewife Roberta (Rosanna Arquette) fills her days by reading the personals and following an ongoing romance between "Jim" and "Susan" (Madonna); mysterious drifters who appears 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 pre-arranged 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 (Smithereens) 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. Plus cameos by downtown scenesters John Turturro, Richard Hell, John Lurie, and others!
