In the tradition of "Diner," "Tin Men," and "Avalon," Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson ("Man of the Year," "Sphere") continues with this story of 1950s Baltimore -- a period of great change with issues of race, religion and class distinction causing turmoil between two generations of a Jewish family. Starring Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody ("The Pianist," "The Thin Red Line"), Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Joe Mantegna (TV's "The Last Don," "Three Amigos!"), Emmy-winner Bebe Neuwirth (TV's "Frasier," "How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days") and Orlando Jones ("The Replacements," TV's "Mad TV"). ". . .a grand slam. . . [Levinson's] best film." -- Daily Variety. ". . .an engrossing, heartfelt account of growing up in America. . . Levinson has cast his film with pure genius." -- The Hollywood Reporter.
