Free Flick Fridays: Moonstruck

"I love you." "Snap out of it!" Isn't love grand? In Norman Jewison's Moonstruck, Cher and Nicolas Cage can't fight the opera-sized drama of true love, and it's a glorious thing in a fantastic movie.



Dir. Norman Jewison (1987)

Did Cher win Best Actress for this film?


Oh yes, yes she did. In a costume designed by Bob Mackie himself that made instant history. Working from a wonderful script by playwright John Patrick Shanley (who also won the Oscar, along with Cher's Mom Olympia Dukakis), director Norman Jewison takes you to Brooklyn and the world of Loretta Castorini (Cher), an Italian widow living with her parents, fated for a dutiful marriage with Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello).

And into this humdrum, drab future storms Johnny's estranged brother Ronny (Nicolas Cage), a brooding Brando of a wolf-man with a wooden hand who is operatic passion personified: "Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice—it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!"

Complications, of course, ensue. Sigh. Watch this film now.
