Directed by Joan Micklin Siver
Carol Kane (Annie Hall, TV's Taxi) stars with Steven Keats (Death Wish) Doris Roberts (TV's Everybody Loves Raymond) in Joan Micklin Silver's (Chilly Scenes of Winter) touching tale of Gitl (Kane), a young Jewish woman who comes to America in the 1890s, only to discover that her husband, Jake (Keats), has given up the ways of the old country, and taken up with a new girlfriend, and a new life. By turns heartbreaking, comic, and sharply observed, this remarkable film garnered Kane an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in 1975, and launched director Joan Micklin Silver's career.
