The Movie: The Rapture (1991)
What Is It?: A year before writing the more renowned The Player, Michael Tolkin wrote and directed a film that walks the line between camp and dead seriousness, leaping onto each side at key points along the way. Mimi Rogers is fantastic as a promiscuous woman who becomes a born-again Christian, and does some truly horrible, horrible things for her god. The “fuck you” ending will have you standing on your seat and screaming, “Right on, Mimi!”
Why Today?: On this day in 1956, Mimi Rogers is born.
