Joshua Then and Now

R| 2 hr. 7 min.

Plot Summary
Joshua Shapiro (James Woods) is a respected writer in England, but his public success masks a troubled upbringing in Montreal's Jewish ghetto. His family was, to say the least, unusual: His mother, Esther (Linda Sorenson), was an exotic dancer, and his father, Reuben (Alan Arkin) a small-time criminal. Using wit and cunning, Joshua climbed the social ladder. But the turmoil of his old life comes rushing back when Joshua returns to Canada with his upper-crust wife, Pauline (Gabrielle Lazure).
