Pop-up Cinema Night, Brunswick Park

18 August 2018

Join us in Brunswick Park for a one-off outdoor film night. We have selected 'Desperately Seeking Susan', 1985, directed by Susan Seidelman, written by Leora Barish and starring Rosanna Arquette and Madonna.

“At its heart, the movie is about shaking off the social conventions that come with being a woman, and the city as a place for reinvention and female freedom.” Arwa Mahdawi, The Guardian, 2017

A bored suburban housewife, seeking escape from her life, follows two lovers in the personals ads of the newspaper. After an accident, she suffers amnesia and is mistaken for one of them, a free-spirited New York City drifter named Susan.

Rated PG, 104 mins.
