Copresented with New Plaza Cinema
A part of the Philip Roth Tribute Marathon
Dir. Larry Peerce (US, 1969, 102 min)
Based on Philip Roth’s short story, published in his first book. Recently discharged from the Army, and with no immediate plans for his future, college dropout Neil Klugman has moved into his Aunt Gladys' Bronx apartment and taken a job in the local library. Having been invited by his cousin Doris to spend a day at the country club to which she belongs, Neil is attracted to a vacationing Radcliffe student, Brenda Patimkin, the daughter of a nouveau riche Jewish businessman. Despite his disdain for Brenda's affluent Westchester County way of life, Neil starts dating her; but parental pressure and the end of Brenda’s summer vacation threaten their newfound relationship.
