It's Tuesday once again... Time to feature another movie here on Tuesday Couch Potatoes.We are still into the theme Favorite Movies from a specific actor/actress and this week, we will feature our Favorite Susan Sarandon Movie.
I have always enjoyed the movies made by Susan Sarandon. One that I particularly love is The Bangers Sisters which was co-starred by Goldie Hawn and Geoffrey Rush. It is a story about friendship, about being true to oneself, about looking back at ones past as something that is not to be embarassed of.
Lavinia (Sarandon) and Suzette (Hawn) are former rock groupies. When Suzette loses her job as a bartender, she decides to pay her friend Vinie, whom she hasn't seen in a very long time, a visit all the way to Arizona. During her road trip, Suzette gets stranded at a gasoline station and without any money to pay for gasoline, she picks up Harry Plummer, a nervous author who is also on his way to Phoenix to confront his father. When they reached their destination, Suzette finds out that Vinie is now Mrs. Lavinia Kingsley, playing the perfect wife to lawyer Raymond Kingsley and mother to two complicated teenagers Hanna and Ginger. Vinie is reluctant to reexperience the flower of her youth, and Harry finds confrontation with himself rather than with his father. But all is well that ends well. Vinie came to terms with her past and her family understood that she is human after all and Suzette returns to Los Angeles together with Harry.
