A new year!! And THE DEUCE has a new lease on life in store for you, with something a little different from around these parts: Francis Ford Coppola’s 1986 serio-comic confection PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED! A vivid glance back at a life already lived – at turns hilarious, sentimental, and sometimes even creepy!
After unhappy house-wife Peggy Sue passes out at her high school reunion, she awakens as her former 1960, 17 year-old, about-to-graduate self (sort of) – revisiting a time when even the present was still stuck in the past… Precocious, prickly, and purposeful… will Prom Queen Peggy still marry high school doo-wopper/future car dealer (and totally nutzoid) Nicolas Cage?? Second-chances and self-determination… Temptations and tragedies… Emotional baggage!! No mere Back To The Future pop-culture tomfoolery – Coppola takes us on a trip to places other films of this ilk are too timid to tread!
Late to the time-travel craze and late to The Deuce – PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED nonetheless puts a fresh face on the genre – bolstered by Kathleen Turner in a stellar star turn – bringing the 17 year-old Peggy to breathless life – that has to be seen to be believed! Let’s all take a look at our lives!!
