Additional Information

New 4K restoration! BETWEEN THE LINES (1977) DIR: Joan Micklin Silver. SCR: Fred Barron. CAST: Stephen Collins, Lindsay Crouse, Jeff Goldblum, John Heard. Perhaps the only feature film ever made about an alt-weekly newspaper, this Boston-based story, alternately titled Fun While It Lasted, centers on the young and ambitious staff of the Back Bay Mainline, and boasts an unbelievable ensemble cast, some of them in their first starring roles. This second film from Joan and her husband Ray Silver, which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival, was financed using their earnings from 1975’s historical romantic drama, Hester Street. DCP, color, 101 min. CROSSING DELANCEY (1988) DIR: Joan Micklin Silver. SCR: Susan Sandler. CAST: Amy Irving, Peter Riegert, Jeroen Krabbé, Reizl Bozyk. Joan Micklin Silver was one of the few directors during the 1970s not only to make independent films a decade before there was a viable marketplace for such films, but also to make a successful transition into the studio system by the end of the decade, with her creative vision mostly intact. Crossing Delancey serves as a bookend to the body of work that she started in the 1970s, and connects to the themes Micklin Silver explored in Hester Street just over a decade earlier. 35mm, color, 97 min.
