Ali MacGraw (Love Story) and Richard Benjamin (Portnoy’s Complaint) make their film debuts in this sharp adaption of Philip Roth’s novella. Neil, a poor librarian, meets Brenda, a spoilt Jewish princess, and they fall in love. But will passion alone help them overcome her parents’ opposition and their pronounced class differences? This compelling drama-cum-social satire was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
