About the Film:
Part of the Honolulu Jewish Film Festival 2018.
Directed by Joan Micklin Silver. 1988. USA. 97 min.
Get a glimpse of New York’s Lower East Side in the 1980s in this time-capsule romantic comedy that has passersby calling Peter Riegert “the pickle man” 30 years later. Amy Irving is thirtysomething Izzy Grossman—a Manhattan success story with a blossoming publishing career and a rent-controlled uptown apartment. Of course, that’s not enough for her grandmother, Bubbie (the Yiddish stage actress Reizl Bozyk in her only film role and first role in English), who has hired a matchmaker (an incredible Sylvia Miles) to find a husband for her single granddaughter. Izzy isn’t looking to get hitched and is happy having flings with literary world types, but her grandmother and the shadchen think the humble pickle seller on Essex Street is perfect.
The film will be introduced by former Yiddish Theater member Herb Latner.
