TRADING PLACES 40th Anniversary


A slyly subversive, incisive film that takes after the great screwball comedies of yesteryear, TRADING PLACES is one of the defining works of the 1980s. Expertly-acted by Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd, and Jamie Lee Curtis, TRADING PLACES follows two men, one rich and one poor, who have their positions switched as part of a bet. On the surface this film is an uproarious comedy, but underneath, it?s a hard look at economic inequality and race in America that still stings today.
