|Imitation of Life|
Lana Turner stars in Sirk's classic tearjerker as a single mother desperate for fame and a life in the theatre.
After a chance meeting at the seaside, Lora takes on Annie (Juanita Moore) to care for her child in return for lodgings; a union that spans a decade full of great successes and heartbreaking tragedies.
Grand in scope, Imitation of Life
offers dark subversion wrapped up in a Technicolor wonderland as themes of racism, capitalism and unbridled ambition are brought to the fore in Sirk's final Hollywood production.
