Tonight at 10 p.m. ET we are showing Michael Radford’s 2000 film “Dancing at the Blue Iguana”. In the film, the personal lives of five exotic dancers go under the microscope. Starring Robert Wisdom as Eddie, the manager of a strip club in suburban California known as the Blue Iguana, we meet the women who make their living dancing for his customers: Stormy (Sheila Kelley), Jo (Jennifer Tilly), Jasmine (Sandra Oh), Jesse (Charlotte Ayanna) and Angel (Daryl Hannah). Daryl’s Angel is a sweet, but immature woman, who tries to deal with her fear of being unloved by adopting a child. This is one of our favorite roles by Ms. Hannah it got us thinking about the best roles that Daryl Hannah has ever played. Obviously a list was in order.
