Desperately Seeking Susan

Cast
Rosanna Arquette
Madonna
Aidan Quinn
Steven Wright
John Turturro

Crew
Directed by Susan Seidelman


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 (Evita) 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 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 (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.

Reviews

"The film acquires a pleasant, syncopated rhythm as it bounces from one unlikely event to another." - CHICAGO READER
