Editor's Note
Amy Irving stars as Isabella Grossman in this enjoyable, slightly off-kilter romantic comedy from Joan Micklin Silver. A beautiful woman in her early thirties, Isabella works as the manager of New York City bookstore, putting her in contact with a wide range of stellar literary figures. Among them is Anton Maes (Jeroen Krabbe), an egotistical European poet who, smitten, offers her a job as his personal secretary. However, it becomes clear that typing and filing were not what Anton had in mind, and Isabella is soon involved with him. But her grandmother, Bubbie (Reizl Bozyk), unhappy with Isabella's unmarried status, intervenes, contracting with a matchmaker (Sylvia Miles) to introduce her to a nice Jewish man. Isabella agrees to date pickle salesman Sam Posner (Peter Riegert), and, predictably, it doesn't go too well. Naturally, things are not always as they seem, and Isabella has to rethink some of her assumptions before she can find love in this charming, old-fashioned take on romance in the 1980s.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...A down-to-earth, contemporary outlook [combined] with the dreaminess of a fairy tale....Played charmingly and believably by [Irving]..." 08/24/1988 p.C15

Los Angeles Times
"...It's at once hip and romantic, wittily sophisticated and unabashedly affectionate....Full of perfectly detailed performances..." 08/31/1988 p.C1

Variety 8 of 10
In an unexpectedly enjoyable way, Crossing Delancey addresses one of the great societal issues of our day - the dilemma of how the 30-ish, attractive, successful, intelligent and unmarried female finds a mate she can be happy with...Off-off-Broadway fans may remember the title from playwright Susan Sandler's semi-autobiographical 1985 comedy about how her loving, old-worldly and slightly overbearing Lower East Side NY Jewish grandmother engages the services of a matchmaker to find her a suitable marriage partner...To the credit of most of the actors, the sentimentality doesn't sink the story.
