AFTER HOURS / DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN

Synopsis:

Thursday, February 18 - 7:30 PM


Rosanna Arquette in Person! AFTER HOURS, 1985, Warner Bros., 97 min. Dir. Martin Scorsese. Manhattan becomes a surreal dreamscape of bizarre terror in Martin Scorsese's film about an ordinary guy who agrees to a late-night date with an attractive but alarmingly disturbed woman (Rosanna Arquette). Dead bodies, strange sculptresses and an incensed ice cream truck mob are all part of the protagonist's weird anti-journey into the dark and neglected hours of the morning.

DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN, 1985, MGM Repertory, 104 min. Dir. Susan Seidelman. Housewife Roberta (Rosanna Arquette) is bored. So bored that she follows the Personals romance between New Yorker Susan (an 80's-glam Madonna) and her boyfriend. When Roberta decides to find Susan in the flesh, the hapless suburbanite gets knocked out and wakes up with amnesia... and a newfound feeling that she is actually Susan. Discussion in between films with actress Rosanna Arquette.
