Crossing Delancey - 1988

Crossing Delancey - Released Jan 1, 1988. Directed by Joan Micklin Silver

New York City romantic comedy in which bookstore employee and feminist Isabelle Grossman (Amy Irving) is maneuvered into an arranged date by her grandmother (called 'Bubbe' in the film, a Yiddish word for Grandmother, played by Reizl Bozyk in the film) who has hired a professional "matchmaker" (played by Sylvia Miles) to find her granddaughter a mate. A local Jewish pickle-maker (Sam, played by Peter Riegert) is the man. When they meet, Isabelle dislikes him on general principals ("this is not how I live, this is a hundred years ago" she protests) and in the process she casually and accidentally insults him, and is alarmed to learn he is a match for her vocabulary and can recognize her latent snobbery.
