Fall under the delightful spell of Moonstruck, the mesmerizing romantic comedy from director Norman Jewison Fiddler on the Roof and OscarÂr winner* John Patrick Shanley. Academy AwardÂr winners** Cher, Nicolas Cage and Olympia Dukakis excel in this explosively funny tale which also features flawless performances by Danny Aiello, Vincent Gardenia and Frasier's John Mahoney. Cher is "devastatingly funny, sinuous and beautiful" Pauline Kael as Loretta, an unlucky in love Italian widow who finds romance through the intervention of the Manhattan moon. With her wedding to a close friend just weeks away, she meets and falls hopelessly in love with his younger brother Cage! Her dilemma and her equally passionate and hilariously eccentric family make for an unforgettable film you'll find "beguiling" Time, "enchanting" Newsweek and "irresistible" "Today Show".
Remember the outfit Cher wore to the Oscars when she won an Academy Award for her performance in this 1987 film? Ay-yi-yi. The actress' more retiring character in this infectious comedy leaps several psychological hurdles just giving her hair a permanent. But then the original screenplay by John Patrick Shanley Joe Versus the Volcano is a wonderful, gently satirical tale of an Italian-American family dealing with repression and dissatisfaction against a backdrop of cultural expectations. Cher is focused and funny as a widow who feels she should marry an older fellow Danny Aiello, but then falls for his black-sheep brother Nicolas Cage. Olympia Dukakis and Vincent Gardenia are perfect as her parents, and John Mahoney of TV's Frasier has a memorable, small role as a middle-aged man on the make who gets a lecture from Dukakis's character. Shanley's dialogue is comically stylized in a way that makes one appreciate how much words can inform an actor's performance. Taking its cues from him and director Norman Jewison And Justice for All, the cast immerse themselves in a pool of hilariously operatic emotion. --Tom Keogh
