Suzette (Goldie Hawn, First Wives Club) is an ex -groupie who, with her tattoos, boob job and wild partying ways, seems determined to live in her glorious past. When she loses her bar job however, Suzette begins to think her days of being a rock chick are numbered and embarks on a road trip to Phoenix. She plans to seek out her old friend and fellow groupie Vinnie (Susan Sarandon, Thelma and Louise) for help, support… and hopefully a good time!
Along the way Suzette picks up an uptight, depressed and celibate writer called Harry (Geoffrey Rush, Shakespeare in Love) who seems to be on a bizarre mission to shoot his father. Suzette’s infectious humour and lust for life soon start rubbing off however and the two form a strong bond, made even stronger when Suzette decides to awaken Harry’s sexual passion! Now all Suzette has to deal with is Vinnie, who has transformed from a trendy rock goddess into a prim, beige-wearing suburban wife and mother, with no plans for a trip down memory lane!
The arrival of Suzette throws Vinnie’s carefully organised life into disarray. Her daughters and husband know nothing of her past and, with Suzette wanting to party like they did before, Vinnie has to answer some increasingly tricky questions! Her daughter Ginger (Eva Amurri, Anywhere But Here) is struggling with her driving test and her other daughter Hannah (Erika Christensen, Traffic, Swimfan) is about to graduate. With both girls demanding all Vinnie’s time, she realises with envy that Suzette has never lost the free spirit attitude they shared in their younger days, and that it’s high time Vinnie enjoyed a reawakening. Juggling a night on the tiles with the school run is just that bit more of a challenge!
THE BANGER SISTERS marks the directorial debut of the writer Bob Dolman (Willow, Far & Away) and, alongside the three Oscar® winning leads, showcases strong supporting performances from both Erika Christensen and Eva Amurri. With show-stopping extras including a blooper reel and a Director’s commentary, THE BANGER SISTERS has something for the rock chick in everyone, and plenty more.
