Isabelle's mischievous grandmother plays matchmaker – with unexpected consequences.
Dir Joan Micklin Silver
With Amy Irving, Peter Riegert, Reizl Bozyk, David Hyde Pierce
Joan Micklin Silver’s warm, acutely observed film puts a spin on the apple-pie conventions of the 80s rom-com by setting events within Manhattan’s Jewish community. Isabelle (Irving) is a thirtysomething, unmarried, intellectual bookshop owner whose mischievous grandmother hires an old-fashioned matchmaker to find her a man – but a humble local pickle-seller isn’t quite who Isabelle had in mind.
