WILD STRAWBERRIES: MOONSTRUCK

Director: NORMAN JEWISON

U.S.A. • 1987 • COLOUR • DOLBY STEREO • 102 MIN


Wild Strawberries is our monthly film club for older people. The screenings are free of charge for anyone over 50 but tickets should be booked well in advance. Bookings can be made through the box office (01 679 3477) or by email (wildstrawberries@irishfilm.ie). Moonstruck is an intoxicating romantic comedy set beneath the biggest, brightest Christmas moon you ever saw. Loretta Castorini, a repressed 37-year-old, is determined to marry sensibly, if not well. Her fiance is the good-natured Johnny Cammareri, who soon flies off to visit his sick mother in Sicily, leaving Loretta to plan the wedding. She issues a personal invitation to his estranged brother Ronny, and in the process, Ronny and Loretta fall head over heels in love.

Though the story shapes itself around Loretta and Ronny, Moonstruck is an ensemble piece about the entire Castorini family — three generations and five dogs — and how the matriarch, Rose, holds them together.
