Ti West on

Peggy Sue Got Married

Released 1986
Distributor TriStar Pictures

A bittersweet wish-fulfillment fantasy from director Francis Ford Coppola. Kathleen Turner stars as a melancholy housewife fast approaching middle-age who hits her head at her class reunion and wakes up in 1960 as her 17 year-old self. What might have been just another helping of ersatz Capra-corn turns into a savvy and even rueful comedy thanks the shrewd screenplay by Jerry Leichting and Arlene Sarner. The duo turned this material into a musical that opened and closed in London’s West End in 2001. The final film of veteran actor Leon Ames.
