What's it about

The film tells the poignant story of Peggy Sue Bodell (Kathleen Turner). She's a 43-year-old housewife on the verge of a divorce from Charlie (Nicolas Cage), an obnoxious philanderer who is locally famous for his tacky TV commercials for his retail appliance business. Peggy Sue squeezes into her old prom dress and goes to her 25th high school reunion to meet all her old friends from James Buchanan High. Subsequently named queen of the reunion, she ascends the podium to accept her crown, and passes out. Tossed into a time warp, she awakens in 1960, a 43-year-old consciousness in an ostensibly 17-year-old body. This feat requires a suspension of disbelief on the part of the audience but Turner pulls it off admirably. The film asks a powerful question: If we had a chance to go back and do it all again, would we do it the same way? Or would we rewrite our lives to create a new outcome?

In 1987, the film got 2 Golden Globe Nominations for Best Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical and Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical: Kathleen Turner. And 3 Academy Award Nominations for Best Actress: Kathleen Turner, Best Cinematography: Jordan Cronenweth and Best Costume Design: Theadora Van Runkle.
