Moonstruck (1987)

Moonstruck (1987), directed by Norman Jewison.

A superior romantic comedy with lots of heart. The Italian sector provides colorful ethnicity this time.

Great ensemble. I particularly like Danny Aiello as the sad sack fiance.

Cher was 40 when making this, Nicholas Cage 22. It's funny: his character is an opera fan who has molded his own life into an overblown tragic opera plot.

Parallel to the younger people we have Old Age in it's wisdom and foolishness, affairs of the heart and body both current and remembered. Lots of magic in that big multi-night full moon.

Available on Blu-ray. Netflix doesn't have it.
