When Susan Seidelman’s Desperately Seeking Susan came out 25 years ago, it encapsulated the freewheeling spirit of ‘80s downtown New York. It was Madonna’s wonderfully trashy and sassy big screen debut, and a triumph for Rosanna Arquette, who plays a suburban housewife who gets amnesia after a knock on the head and wakes up convinced she’s the swaggering hipster Susan, with whom she’s become obsessed. Trouble is, the real Susan - played by you know who - has gangsters on her tail, and a long line of discarded boyfriends. Put on your pink tutu and get back in the groove!
