“You don’t normally see a movie with two heavily made-up women sword-fighting with shovels and calling out catty retorts as they just decimate each other… it’s just so campy and over the top that it’s like, how could this not have been made for drag queens?” – Jerick Hoffer, Drag Race Season 5 winner

Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis, and Isabella Rossellini are all that the top of their game in this gothic-comic romp, which won an Oscar winner for best visual effects. When a novelist loses her man to a movie star and former friend, she winds up in a psychiatric hospital. Years later, she returns home to confront the now-married couple, looking radiant. Her ex-husband’s new wife wants to know her secret, and discovers that she has been taking a mysterious drug which grants eternal life to the person who drinks it. The actress follows suit, but discovers that immortality has a price.
