Program Description

Dir. Richard Shepard
105 min, Digital Projection
With Rosanna Arquette, David Bowie and Eszter Balint

Never released on DVD, this lost gem of Bowie’s acting career teams him with Rosanna Arquette in one of the most original romantic comedies from the American indie film movement of the 1990s.  Arquette is Lucy, a frustrated escape artist, who is obsessed with becoming a modern female version of Harry Houdini. She collects Houdini artifacts and waits for her big break while working as a waitress at a trendy Manhattan restaurant. She teams up with the British bartender Monte, played by David Bowie, on a daring heist of the restaurant. It also features Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin as a deaf restaurant hostess.
