Q&A with Norman Jewison and Olympia Dukakis on May 28!
In Jewison’s quotable, award-winning hit, a gloriously maned Cher is the Brooklyn widow who finds herself falling for her fiancé’s brother, a one-handed baker (Nicolas Cage). With affectionate humor, Jewison’s picture paints a portrait of Italian-American family that struck a chord with audiences, with every last brouhaha embraced by John Patrick Stanley’s Oscar-winning screenplay. And for her role as Cher’s tell-it-like-it-is mother, Olympia Dukakis also won (for Best Supporting Actress), after being virtually unknown to moviegoers.
