April is a Movie Matinee month and our selection is Ladyhawke!
Ladyhawke is a fantasy adventure movie with a romance and a young Matthew Broderick. If you’ve never seen it, here’s the description:
Upon breaking out of a dungeon, youthful thief Phillipe Gaston (Matthew Broderick) befriends Capt. Navarre (Rutger Hauer), a man with a strange secret. Navarre and his lover Lady Isabeau d’Anjou (Michelle Pfeiffer) were cursed by the wicked Bishop of Aquila (John Wood), who desires Lady Isabeau for himself.
His dark magic prevents the pair from ever being in each other’s presence except at twilight, so they enlist Gaston in a dangerous plot to overthrow the Bishop and break his evil enchantment.
If you haven’t seen this movie, you’re in for a treat. There’s a lot of very familiar tropes at work here, plus comedy. And if you have and it’s been awhile, I hope you got that same, Ooooooooh yeah! feeling of nostalgia I did when Amanda suggested this film.
Ladyhawke is available to rent for around $3 and $10-13 to buy digitally on iTunes, Google:Play, and Amazon, and the DVD can be found at your local library, or cheaply online in new and used condition from Amazon or Alibris.
We’ll be hosting a group chat on the site on Sunday, 22 April, at 8:00pm ET! You can watch on your own schedule, then hang out with us to talk about the film.
Much like the book club chats, we’ll be here at SBTB in a text-based chat (so no need to worry about video or audio) discussing the movie and our reactions.
I love this movie and haven’t watched it in a long time, and I’m very much looking forward to discussing it with you!
