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.
