This unorthodox and bittersweet comedy received an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay based on another medium. Phillip Roth's best-selling social satire brings together Richard Benjamin and Ali MacGraw, even though they're not exactly suited for each other. Neil is a poor Bronx librarian and Brenda is a pampered Jewish princess from Westchester. Benjamin and MacGraw are superb in their film debuts as the lovers who try to cross class lines amidst kisses and her parents' stiff opposition. One of the most appealing, poignant comedies ever produced.
