  • Set in 1948 Montreal in a Jewish ghetto, a young Dreyfuss gives an excellent performance as the title character who suffers through years of self-abuse in an effort to become something of substance. Constantly reinforcing the low self-image created by his peers, Kravitz entertains thoughts of riches and glamour. His failed entrepreneurial efforts lead him not to success as he hopes but alienate him from those who can help.
    The book by Mordecai Richler was published in 1959 and caused a huge stir among the Jewish community who were angry at what they perceived to be negative depictions of Jewish people.
