Directed by Susan Seidelman | 1985

With Madonna, Rosanna Arquette, Aidan Quinn

A bump on the head and a case of amnesia leads a vanilla Jersey housewife (Arquette) to take on the persona of a Lower East Side-dwelling hipster (Like a Virgin-era Madonna) who’s being pursued by killers. Susan Seidelman’s goofball take on Jacques Rivette’s Celine and Julie Go Boating is a spirited slice of retro-80s cool featuring cameos by downtown mainstays John Turturro, Richard Hell, John Lurie, and others.
