What a great movie!  There was, in fact, a "Heather" in my class in primary
school (I've a vague notion she was dark and plump), but like you, I cannot
now hear the naem without thinking of that movie.  "Laura", on the other
hand, makes me think of the 80s singer Laura Branigan.

I'm inclined to think PUSH-keh-vitch.  But I know nothing about Polish, and
am probably dead wrong.

Until the sky falls on our heads...
