Storyline

Based on the novel by Belva Plain, covering a time span from 1909 to 1959. The story begins in New York's Lower East Side with the arrival of Polish-Jewish immigrant Anna (Lesley Ann Warren). At first employed as a humble seamstress, Anna is whisked into a whole new world when she becomes the wife of the enterprising Joseph Friedman (Armand Assante), who eventually becomes a wealthy Westchester contractor. Even so, Anna's heart belongs to Paul Lerner (Ian Shane), the son of the prosperous Fifth Avenue family which employs her relatives. In 1918, Anna gives birth to Paul's daughter, allowing Joseph to believe that he is the father. The secret surrounding Anna's child will lead to a daunting and frequently heartbreaking chain of events, culminating decades later in the newly formed state of Israel, where Anna's grandson Eric hopes to "find himself" -- and ends up finding more than he bargained for. Written by Douglas Gordon

Evergreen
22 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having borrowed a VHS from a friend I found it an absolute delight to watch. I have tried various stores to get a copy and I have failed. I'm wondering if someone, somewhere knows where I can purchase a copy on either VHS or DVD. Thank You. I will be willing to use an internet purchase, even if its a good second hand copy I will be willing to purchase it. The film I am seeking starred Ian Mcshane, in the part of Paul Lerner. It was a wonderful love story which I would dearly love to own. I'm hoping that someone, somewhere would be able to help and end my search. I really am surprised that this film is not readily available in the shops, when films & series made in the Forties can be obtained without too much searching.
