Imitation of Life

A film by Douglas Sirk
Starring Lana Turner, Susan Kohner

Sirk’s final feature is also one of his greatest achievements. Actress Lora Meredith (Lana Turner) hires a down-and-out black maid while she tries to restart her acting career, at the expense of her daughter and lover. As the years pass, Sarah Jane (Susan Kohner), daughter of the maid, tries to pass as white, slowly coming to resent her mother’s black identity.
