Trailers from Hell: Ti West on Coppola's Savvy and Rueful 1986 Comedy 'Peggy Sue Got Married'
Deja Vu All Over Again! concludes at Trailers from Hell, with director Ti West on Francis Ford Coppola’s “Peggy Sue Got Married,” a bittersweet wish-fulfillment fantasy starring Kathleen Turner.
Turner stars as a melancholy housewife fast approaching
middle-age who hits her head at her class reunion and wakes up in 1960 as her
17 year-old self. What might have been just another helping of ersatz
Capra-corn turns into a savvy and even rueful comedy thanks the shrewd
screenplay by Jerry Leichting and Arlene Sarner. The duo turned this material
into a musical that opened and closed in London’s West End in 2001. The final
film of veteran actor Leon Ames.
