Hester Street (DVD)
Directed by Joan Micklin Silver
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) arrives on his doorstep. Sumptuously shot in black and white, director Joan Micklin Silver’s loving, funny debut feature 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 classic.
DVD Extras Include:
Two new interviews with director Joan Micklin Silver by Shonni Enelow
