SEE THIS MOVIE!

One of my top 10 favorite films of all time.

White Palace (1990)
Director: Luis Mandoki
Principal Cast:
Susan Sarandon - Nora Baker
James Spader - Max Baron
Jason Alexander - Neil
Kathy Bates - Rosemary
Eileen Brennan - Judy

Plot Summary: Max Baron (James Spader) is a 27-year-old high flying advertising executive still recovering from the death of his wife, Janey. One night he is in a bar when he meets Nora Baker (Susan Sarandon) a 43-year-old waitress with a fixation on Marilyn Monroe. The couple gradually fall in love, though age and social differences mean that the path of true love is strewn with problems.

Favorite lines:
Nora: Wait a minute, we get naked with each other and touch each other and you get inside of me and you can't tell me how much rent you pay? Your landlord knows, you're not even fucking him!
Sherri: You know, our Max is quite a catch. How did you manage it?
Nora: I give a good blowjob, I guess.
Sherri: Hmm... I bet you do!
Nora: And I bet you don't.

Max: All I know is that when I'm not with you I'm a total wreck.
Nora: And when you are with me?
Max: I'm a different kind of total wreck.

[Nora is going to meet Max's friends for Thanksgiving]
Nora: Alright, I'm gonna go in there, I'm gonna say 'Hello, my name is Nora and you can all go fuck yourselves, I'm not Janey (the deceased wife).' How's that?
Max: Perfect.

Judy: Come on, I wanna know how you two met.
Nora: I picked him up in a bar. How's that?
Max: I was drunk, and she was drunk, and I liked her looks so I convinced her to let me bring her home, and I seduced her on the sofa bed, and it was magic, and I keep coming back for more.
