JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival - Famous Nathan
The restaurant is the subject of Famous Nathan, a documentary that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Nathan's Famous Frankfurters has been a New York staple for nearly 100 years.  In this personal documentary, director Lloyd Handwerker, grandson of "Famous Nathan," takes a look back at his family's unique history, the Jewish-American immigrant experience and Nathan's pursuit of the American dream. Enter a lively cast of characters  from colorful family members to Coney Island regulars and celebrity patrons.

"You wouldn't think that a film about a hot dog restaurant that eventually evolved into a national chain would be the stuff of compelling cinema. But this effort, no less than thirty years in the making, offers enough family drama to fuel a Shakespeare play."
Frank Scheck (Hollywood Reporter)
