Coming Soon

Writer/director Joan Micklin Silver's unforgettably moving masterpiece Hester Street returns in a New 4K Restoration! 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, Gitl (Carol Kane), arrives on his doorstep. Sumptuously shot in black and white, Silver’s loving, funny debut feature became an unexpected hit, and the rare indie to garner an Oscar nomination—for Kane’s heartbreaking turn. Based on the novella Yekl by Abraham Cahan.
