In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we’re struggling with a curse. Apparently, Jason turns into poop tossing primate by day and Joel turns into a slightly used douche bag by night. Oh wait… that’s not a curse, that’s how we’ve always been. Nevermind. Because this week we’re talking about that fantasy flick from 1985, Ladyhawke!
Directed by: Richard Donner
Screenplay by: Edward Khmara
Starring: Matthew Broderick, Rutger Hauer, and Michelle Pfeiffer
A thief called “The Mouse” escapes the dungeons of medieval Aquila, setting in motion a chain of events that may save or destroy a beautiful woman and a brave captain. The two lovers are doomed to lifelong separation by a demonic curse invoked by the corrupt and jealous Bishop of Aquila: by day Isabeau is transformed into a hawk, while at night Navarre becomes a wolf. Imperius, the monk who betrayed them, has found a way to break the curse, but only if he and the Mouse can get them back into Aquila to face the Bishop.
