Storyline

In the late 1940s in New York's Jewish community, cobbler Feld and his wife try to convince their daughter Miriam to go to college. She is reticent, thinking she can get all the education she needs from the classic novels recommended by Feld's assistant, Sobel. Feld tries to fix Miriam up with neighborhood college boy Max. Sobel is angered and storms out -- does he have feelings for Miriam despite the fact he has worked for Feld for five years without revealing them? Written by Dan Harkless

A well-done short film
12 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not too much to say about this one. A good light self-contained 30-minute film. Carol Kane (the actress I tuned in for) doesn't get to do all that much, but fits nicely into the 1940s Jewish mom role.

One oddment is the treatment of the (unsubtitled) Yiddish dialogue in the film. On the Closed Caption track, the Yiddish is in one case simply described in English, in another case transcribed, and in two other cases actually translated! Never seen "hidden subtitles" in the CC track before.
