Where were you 30 years ago? Were you sitting in a movie theatre watching one of the soon-to-be classics that hit the big screen? Time travel back with us to a year of memorable (and fun!) cinema!
When lively lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier (Whoopi Goldberg) sees her mobster beau, Vince LaRocca (Harvey Keitel), commit murder, she is relocated for her protection. Set up in the guise of a nun in a California convent, Deloris proceeds to upend the quiet lives of the resident sisters. In an effort to keep her out of trouble, they assign Deloris to the convent’s choir, an ensemble that she soon turns into a vibrant and soulful act that gains widespread attention.
Full of hysterical one-liners and rousing music, this habit-forming classic also features a delightful turn from national treasure Kathy Najimy and a master class in lip pursing from Dame Maggie Smith. Hallelujah and Amen!
