New York City
Based on Neil Simon’s memoirs of growing up in Brooklyn, this coming-of-age
comedy recounts life in 1937 through the eyes of a young teenage boy.
Eugene Jerome, dreaming of baseball and girls, must cope with the mundane
existence of his cramped, Jewish-American family life: an over-worked
father, under-appreciated mother, and his worldly older brother Stanley.
Throw into the mix his asthmatic Aunt Blanche, her two pampered daughters
and Grandpa the Socialist, and you have a recipe for true hilarity. This
bittersweet memoir is an affectionate, entertaining lesson in overcoming
hard times with warmth and humor.
