Thu, Mar 26 @ 7:00 pm: Anne V. Coates, Editor; presented and introduced by film critic, podcaster and comedian Jourdain Searles.

Director: Andrew Bergman Run Time: 115 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R

Release Year: 1996

Starring: Demi Moore, Armand Assante, Ving Rhames, Robert Patrick, Burt Reynolds

When her ex-husband gets custody of their daughter, former FBI office assistant Erin Grant (Demi Moore) needs money to fight the legal case to get her child back. As a result, she takes a job dancing at the Eager Beaver strip club in Miami, where she befriends an imposing bouncer named Shad (Ving Rhames). Unfortunately, she also becomes an object of obsession for politician David Dilbeck (Burt Reynolds), who gets what he wants through charm and violence — and what he wants is Erin.

Jourdain Searles says, “Striptease is one of the most earnest films about stripping, government corruption, and motherhood. What other movie will you find Burt Reynolds covered in vaseline or Demi Moore practicing a strip routine to Annie Lennox’s ‘Little Bird?’ You will never see a more noble box office failure.”
