Claudine’s Return ~ (USA, 1998) ~ Cable

Claudine’s Return is a movie that never gets off the ground, despite the good intentions of Christina Applegate. Applegate plays a motel laundress and stripper who has obviously burnt (or is in the process) of burning her bridges. The story takes place in coastal Georgia, where Claudine has hidden herself away. WHen an Italian drifter shows up, the sparks fly however briefly.

No one seems to know where this movie is headed, and the only thing worthwhile is Applegate’s performance. She needs a better agent.

As you can tell from the movie poster, they didn’t even know what to call the film.
