Obvious Child director Gillian Robespierre and star Jenny Slate introduce this Manhattan comedy following the romantic travails of a literary young woman caught between the charming pickle salesman her cantankerous grandmother has thrust upon her and the European novelist she seeks to impress. Speaking on Crossing Delancey, Slate has claimed it as her "favorite movie ever... I saw it as a little girl, and from that moment on, I dreamed of being a certain kind of actress" (Filmmaker Magazine).
