Cast

All three previously married but now single, best friends sculptress Alex Medford(Cher), cellist Jane Spofford(Susan Sarandon) and writer Sukie Ridgemont(Michelle Pfeiffer) are feeling emotionally and sexually repressed, in large part due to the traditional mores overriding their small New England coastal town of Eastwick. After their latest conversation lamenting about the lack of suitable men in Eastwick and describing the qualities they are looking for in a man, mysterious Daryl Van Horne(Jack Nicholson) and his equally mysterious butler Fidel(Carel Struycken) arrive in town. Despite being vulgar, crude, brazen and not particularly handsome, Daryl manages to be able to tap into the innermost emotions of the three friends, and as such manages to seduce each. In turn, the three women blossom emotionally and sexually. After an incident involving one of the town's leading citizens, the ultra conservative Felicia Alden(Veronica Cartwright), the three women begin to understand how and why Daryl is able to mesmerize them so fully. The three decide to experiment with some powers learned indirectly from Daryl so that they can hopefully regain control of their own lives.
