No. 58: Crossing Delancey
The other side of the tracks
1988, dir. Joan Micklin Silver. Sometimes the greatest adventures are found at home, as viewers learned in Joan Micklin Silver’s story of the intellectually aspiring Isabelle Grossman (Amy Irving) who, after dabbling in the shmancy world of uptown intellectuals, ultimately finds true love at her bubbe’s Lower East Side pickle store. Crossing Delancey is our people’s Moonstruck.
