Retro Rewind: Madonna’s ‘A Certain Sacrifice’

Published: Saturday 25th Aug 2018 by David

Madonna‘s brilliant filmography is the subject of today’s Retro Rewind.

Under the microscope? Her very first movie ‘A Certain Sacrifice.’

In it, the performer plays a wild lady named Bruna who lives with two lovers who assault her when she tells them that she is leaving them for another lover.

What happened next?

Find out below…

The movie was shot in 1979 but only saw the light of day in 1985, much to Madonna’s horror as its themes threatened to ruin her newfound fame and public image. Her plan to have the project ban were foiled much to the delight of director Stephen Jon Lewicki who used her star power to draw in audiences.

      You can’t deny that her filmography is interesting even if not good. Body of Evidence, Evita etc.

    Well this is the first time I’ve heard her filmography called brilliant. I actually think her filmography is a bit underrated. I enjoyed “Body of Evidence” and “A League of Their Own” is a classic.

    Desperately Seeking Susan, D*** Tracy, A League of Their Own and Evita are all great bc Madonna is basically playing Madonna in each

      And because they’re anchored by veteran box office stars; Desperately Seeking Susan was a Rosanna Arquette vehicle, D*** Tracy was powered by Warren Beatty and Al Pacino, A League of Their Own was Tom Hanks and Geena Davis, and Evita was already an Iconic Broadway musical pioneered by Patti Lupone. Madonna basically didn’t have to do anything but play herself.
