We are absolutely thrilled to have the fabulous Bri Luna of The Hoodwitch on the podcast today to talk about one of her favorite movies, She-Devil! The 1989 flick stars Roseanne Barr as a jilted housewife who devises a long-con revenge on her cheating husband and the romance novelist who stole him (Meryl Streep in one of her most underrated roles). Costume designer Albert Wolsky takes the characters through a fantastical voyage of clothes, beginning with caricatures of extreme femininity and stereotypes of the forgotten housewife, then into a transformation that is both sartorial and spiritual. It’s a makeover like no other!
Bri opens our eyes to the movie’s many unseen layers: looking at it through a magickal lens, and how the two main characters can be interpreted as Lilith and Eve. It’s so much more about revenge (one of our favorite genres); it also explores the dichotomy of womanhood, female repression and oppression, and the power of the underdog. You're going to want to eat an eclair in the bathtub while you tune into this extremely Taurus, Libra, and Scorpio-esque movie now!
