Throwback Thursday- 1980’s TV Miniseries Edition-Queenie (1987)

When we have dreams, we sometimes have to make choices to see those dreams become reality. The question is, what happens when we make those choices and what are the consequences of the choices, especially when we deny who we are?

In the 1987 TV miniseries Queenie, Queenie Thompson (Mia Sara) is the biracial daughter of a White man and a Indian woman who upon first glance, no one would think is half Indian. Dreaming of Hollywood and celebrity, she changes her name to Dawn Avalon and becomes a star. But while she is reaching the peak of Hollywood stardom, she is denying who and what she is.

Granted, this is 1987 television miniseries. But what I like about it is that is speaks to all of us in the dual quest for reaching for our goals why hanging to our authentic selves.

I recommend it.
