Crossing Delancey

by Susan Sandler

This romantic comedy invites us into the lives of Isabel (Izzy), a young, single woman who works in a lower east side Manhattan bookstore and her sharp-witted Yiddish grandmother “Bubbie.” Generational and cultural classes erupt when Bubbie hires a matchmaker and pressures Izzy to meet Sam the Pickle man.  The New York Times called Crossing Delancey, “an amusing romance that tells its unpretentious story believably, rarely trying to make its gag lines, of which there are many, upstage its narration or outshine its heart.”

Directed by Bruce Ackerman.
