UVJC-Hillel Film Series schedule

Jan 24 – Hester Street (1975)

Carole Kane stars with Steven Keats and Doris Roberts in the touch­ing tale of Gitl, a young Jewish woman who comes to America in the 1890s, only to discover that her husband Jake has given up the ways of the old country.  Beyond that, he has also taken up with a new girlfriend and a new life. By turns heartbreaking, comic, and sharply observed, this remarkable film garnered Kane an Academy Award nomination as Best Actress in 1975 and launched the career of director Joan Micklin Silver. 90 minutes; rated PG


Based on Mordechai Richler’s semi-autobiographical novel, this film relates the life and times of a Jewish writer living in Canada, whose father was a small-time gangster, who marries into a politically and socially prominent WASP family. 118 minutes; rated R.
