Cohen Media presents a new 4K restoration from the original camera negative of Joan Micklin Silver's debut feature film. In 1890s New York City (evocatively recreated on a shoestring budget), Jewish immigrant Steven Keats has seamlessly integrated into American society, until his wife from back home (Carol Kane) arrives on his doorstep. Sumptuously shot in black and white, Silver’s entertaining and humorous debut film was an unexpected hit, achieving instant critical acclaim after a screening at the 1975 Festival de Cannes during La Semaine de la Critique, and becoming one of the few independent films to earn an Oscar nomination (thanks to Kane’s harrowing performance).
