The Purple Rose of Cairo Add to Favorites

Unhappily married Depression-era waitress Cecilia (Mia Farrow) earns the money while her inattentive husband, Monk (Danny Aiello), blows their meager income on getting drunk and gambling.

When Tom literally steps off of the screen and into her life, both realities are thrown into chaos.
