FFR 142: The Witches of Eastwick

Today’s episode of the podcast finishes up our spooky season series on occult-themed nostalgia watches with 1987’s The Witches of Eastwick, starring Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Cher, adapted from the John Updike novel. Join us as we try to figure out how we feel about this movie including big 80s perms (great), Cher (even better), and Jack Nicholson’s diabolic sex appeal (not good). Made at the height of Reagan’s America, does the film have something insightful to say about gender inquality, or like the devilish Daryl, is it in the end all about reinforcing the Patriarchal status quo?
