Madonna's first starring role?
A street-wise teen gets herself in a series of circumstances and mishaps in her meaningless existence.
Certain to shock, certain to be talked about and certain to be a collector's item. This rare piece of music history was shot in 1979 but not released to the public until 1985. A Certain Sacrifice is the first project ever in which Madonna tested her acting abilities. Though raw and mostly improvised, it's clear that even as an unknown, 20 year old Madonna had intrigue which would be better displayed in her later projects.
Madonna plays Bruna, a sexy, street wise girl surviving in New York's Lower East Side. After she is brutally assaulted, Bruna enlists the help from those closest to her to seek revenge upon her assailant... leading to a shocking ending.
Though quick cut, this hour-long film is unique, controversial and definitely a vital part of Madonna's history.
Note: this is an underground production and may not be up to current digital standards and is offerred, "as is," for its scientific value
