WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Paul Mazursky directs Daniel Goldfarb's Adam Baum and the Jew Movie, starring Richard Kind, Hamish Linklater, and Gregory Mikurak. It's 1946. Successful studio head, Samuel Baum wants to make a movie about anti-semitism. He hires Oscar winning screenwriter and profoundly gentile, Garfield Hampson, Jr. to write the script. When he discovers that a competing studio has nearly completed the screenplay to Gentleman's Agreement, he is desperate to be the first one out of the gate. As Samuel sees it, there's only room for one "Jew movie" a year. "What's more, it should be written by a Gentile (unlike Zanuck's writer, Moss Hart) who will depict Jews through his 100% American eyes. " He knows that his will tell the real story.
