Description

Now is your chance to see the new digital restoration of the beloved Canadian classic film that has not aged in forty years. In this adaptation of Mordecai Richler’s novel, Richard Dreyfuss stars as the irrepressible Jewish kid from St. Urbain Street, driven by an insatiable desire to be a somebody and own a parcel of land. Bold and stunning Micheline Lanctôt plays Yvette, the French waitress who is charmed by Duddy and allows herself to be used in his schemes. Winner of various international awards upon its initial release, including the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival, the film is both funny and deeply poignant… and the hilarious bar mitzvah scene alone is worth the price of admission.
