IU CINEMA: Imitation of Life

A chance meeting at Coney Island forever entangles and changes the lives of two single mothers, one black and the other white. Lora Meredith (Lana Turner), a struggling actress, employs Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), an out-of-work maid, to care for her daughter Susie (Sandra Dee). As Lora’s quest for stardom threatens her relationship with Susie, Annie has difficulties with her own daughter Sarah Jane (Susan Kohner), who attempts to disown her mother and her African-American identity in order to pass for white.
