Pfeiffer's Pfinest Pfilms is the theme for this winter selection of DFS Member's screenings, as we take a quick look at three cinematic greats from one of our greatest living actors; Michelle Pfeiffer. Quickly proving to be much more than just a pretty face, Pfeiffer infused typical "girl" roles with bite, charm and something much more behind her blue eyes. This series looks at just five years (1988 - 1993) of Pfeiffer's decades long career which saw a great amount of growth and acclaim and some very notable roles.

Angela de Marco (Michelle Pfeiffer) is fed up with her gangster husband's (Alec Baldwin) line of work and wants no part of the crime world. When her husband is killed for having an affair with the mistress of mob boss Tony "The Tiger" Russo (Dean Stockwell), Angela and her son depart for New York City to make a fresh start. Unfortunately, Tony has set his sights upon Angela -- and so has an undercover FBI agent (Matthew Modine) looking to use her to bust Tony.
