Abstract:

Spans forty years in the life of a popular Canadian novelist. Joshua Shapiro (Woods) is a man facing a scandal. A tawdry newpaper has falsely involved him in a homosexual affair and his wife now lives in a mental hospital. Joshua takes a look at his life, trying to figure it all out. His father (Arkin), a small-time gangster, taught Joshua his unique version of the Torah and morality, in between prison sentences. His mother dreamed of being a movie star and wound up a stripper. Joshua's gentile wife, the daughter of a wealthy Senator, introduced him to a world vastly different from the one he grew up in on the streets. It's compelling drama lightly seasoned with comedy.
