Imitation of Life - First Monday Movies - April 6th
Single mothers Lora Meredith (Lana Turner) and Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore) meet at Coney Island. Lora is a struggling actress who needs someone to take care of her daughter Susie while she looks for work. Annie, an African-American widow, offers to work as Lora's maid for food and lodging. Their two stories unfold across the years. As Lora's career blossoms, she spends less time with Susie. Annie is devoted to her daughter, but the light-skinned Sarah Jane is resentful of the racial bias around her and does everything she can to hide her origins. This is a remake of the 1934 film. Directed by Douglas Sirk. (1959, 125 mins.)
