Erin and Paul review two films featuring the acting debuts of female pop stars... who went on to remain better known as singers. First, DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN, Susan Seidelman's 1985 screwball comedy starring Madonna as a hip female drifter who switches identities with a bored suburban housewife played by Rosanna Arquette; then, MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS, Wong Kar-Wai's 2007 critical flop starring Norah Jones as a woman who rebounds from breaking up with her boyfriend by taking a series of waitressing and bartending jobs in Memphis and Las Vegas, and Jude Law as a dreamy café owner who pines after her back in New York. Personal ads that everyone reads, or postcards that nobody answers: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on THE HUSTLER, JOHN WICK, STRETCH, and LISTEN UP PHILIP.
