Starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Modine

The emotions are high, the hair is big, and everybody’s yelling in Jonathan Demme’s murderous slapstick crime comedy. The beautiful young wife of a gangster, Angela (Michelle Pfeiffer), is the object of everyone’s affections, except for the clique of fellow mob wives (Joan Cusack and Mercedes Ruehl, turning in hilarious performances). When Angela is suddenly widowed, a pack of suitors vies for her attention, including a married mob boss (Dean Stockwell in an Oscar-nominated role) and an undercover FBI agent (Matthew Modine). Angela’s attempts to leave “the family” result in comedic mayhem in this offbeat and stylish farce.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Once in a Lifetime: Jonathan Demme in the 1980s, each film in this series will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Lisa DeNight.
