Carol Kane gives an Oscar-nominated performance as Gitl, a young Jewish woman who arrives in America to reunite with her husband, only to discover that he has taken up a new life on the Lower East Side. Their marriage crumbles as Jake (Steven Keats) sheds his Old World ways for a new girlfriend, while his wife clings to her long-standing heritage. Selected for The Library of Congress National Film Registry, HESTER STREET is notable as one of the first successful films produced outside Hollywood by a female filmmaker. Director Joan Micklin Silver self-financed the modest $400,000 budget, and completed principal photography in just 34 days. Actors, including co-star Doris Roberts, worked diligently with a dialect coach to master the script's extensive use of Yiddish.
On-location black-and-white photography in Greenwich Village and other Manhattan locales adds to the period drama's authenticity.
