Directed by Susan Seidelman
Starring Madonna, Rosanna Arquette, Aidan Quinn

When bored housewife Roberta (Rosanna Arquette) stumbles across a personal ad titled “Desperately Seeking Susan”, she becomes fascinated by this mysterious woman – played by the iconic Madonna. The two women’s lives become further intertwined after a chance encounterhas Roberta mistaken for Susan, and she decides to go along for the ride…

This 80s cult classic features era-defining fashion and music, as you would expect for a film starring the Queen of Pop, but there is substance alongside the style. Directed by Smithereens’ Susan Seidelman, and inspired by Alice in Wonderland and Jacques Rivette’s Celine and Julie Go Boating, this quirky film is a smart and playful NYC fairy-tale exploring themes of identity and destiny.
