The Witches of Eastwick

The Witches of Eastwick is a 1987 American comedy-fantasy film based on John Updike's novel of the same name.

The Witches of Eastwick (portrayed by Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer and Cher)
The Witches of Eastwick
Alexandra Medford (portrayed by Cher), Jane Spofford (portrayed by Susan Sarandon), and Sukie Ridgemont (portrayed by Michelle Pfeiffer) are three dissatisfied women living in the picturesque town of Eastwick, Rhode Island. Alexandra is a sculptress and single mother of one daughter; Jane is a newly divorced music teacher incapable of having children; and Sukie is an extremely fertile woman with six daughters, who also works as a journalist at the "'Eastwick Word." Besides an everlasting friendship, these three women also share the similar misfortune of losing their husbands (Alex's is deceased, Jane's divorced her, and Sukie's abandoned her). Unaware that they are witches, the women unwittingly form a coven where they have weekly get-togethers and share their fantasies about ideal men.

Alexandra Medford (portrayed by Cher)
The day after one such gathering, a mysterious man, Daryl Van Horne, (portrayed by Jack Nicholson) arrives in the town and immediately stirs up trouble by buying the town's landmark property - the Lennox Mansion.
