In 1890s New York City, evocatively recreated on a shoestring budget, Jewish immigrant Jake (Steven Keats) has assimilated seamlessly into the American community…until his wife from back home (Carol Kane, Scrooged) arrives on his doorstep.

Sumptuously shot in black and white, director Joan Micklin Silver’s (Between the Lines) loving, funny debut feature from 1975 became an unexpected hit, and the rare independent American film to garner an Oscar nomination for Kane’s heartbreaking, but ultimately empowering turn. Cohen Film Collection is proud to present a gorgeous new 4K restoration of this American drama-comedy classic.

Special Features:
-Two new interviews with director Joan Micklin Silver by Shonni Enelow
-Archival audio commentary track with director Joan Micklin Silver and producer Raphael Silver
-Archival interviews with key cast and crew members
-Original opening title sequence and outtakes with audio commentary by Daniel Kremer, author of an upcoming book about Joan Micklin Silver
-Restoration Trailer
