Hester Street

Joan Micklin Silver
With Carol Kane, Steven Keats, Paul Freedman
1975, 92min, 35mm

 

This touching, turn-of-the-century-set immigrant’s tale explores the experiences of a shy young Jewish woman (Carol Kane in a Best Actress Oscar-nominated performance) caught between Old and New World traditions as she adjusts to life on New York’s Lower East Side. Through evocative black and white cinematography, a screenplay comprised largely of subtitled Yiddish, and meticulous historical detail, Joan Micklin Silver offers a vivid portrait of 1890s Jewish life.
