Directed by Joan Micklin Silver
(1988) Unmarried Upper West Sider Amy Irving takes time off from managing book store readings to visit her bubbie (Yiddish actress Reizel Bozyk in her only film) on the Lower East Side, where shadchen Sylvia Miles hooks her up with Essex Street pickle man Peter Riegert. Just the right match — or is he? 35mm. Approx. 97 min.
“Charming…with a glorious performance by Peter Riegert.”
– The Jewish Week
“Combines a down-to-earth, contemporary outlook with the dreaminess of a fairy tale.”
– Janet Maslin, The New York Times
