To commemorate the recent passing of groundbreaking director Joan Micklin Silver (Hester Street), TJFF is hosting a special screening of the beloved romantic comedy, Crossing Delancey. Thirty-something and single in New York, Isabelle “Izzy” is attracted to a married, sophisticated author (Jeroen Krabbe) but her Lower East Side grandmother enlists the help of a matchmaker who introduces her to a charming but unworldly pickle vendor (Peter Reigert). Who will she choose? “Crossing Delancey is a culturally distinctive romcom, not one that mutes its differences in an attempt to assimilate, and is all the more enjoyable for it, whatever the audience’s ethnicity.” (Hadley Freeman, The Guardian)
