Movie Info

Judy Berlin allows the audience to take a glimpse of a day at once strange and ordinary with the residents of Babylon, Long Island. Judy (Edie Falco) is an aspiring actress who is quitting her job as a "pilgrim" in a local historical museum's display to take her chances in Los Angeles. Her mother is a gifted but bitter schoolteacher (Barbara Barrie) who has long loved principal Arthur Gold (Bob Dishy) from afar. However, Arthur has a wife, Alice (Madeline Kahn), who's more than a bit eccentric

A humorous, melancholy look at a suburban community in Long Island whose characters include lonely housewives, frustrated teachers, and aspiring actresses, with wonderful performances by Edie Falco, Barbara Barrie and Madeline Kahn in her last role.

Anything that a first-time filmmaker can do to annoy, Mendelsohn does it.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Black-and-white movie of crisp contrast and dreamlike content.

June 28, 2004 Full Review Source: Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

Judy Berlin isn't just a slice-of-life movie; it's the quintessential slice-of-life movie--a movie whose primary purpose is to capture a moment in time and contectualize it.

The debut feature film of Eric Mendelsohn reveals his fascination with the ordinary rhythms of everyday life on one extraordinary day.

Lacks a punch that Mendelsohn's rough direction and the uneasy black-and-white photography can't provide.

A highly watchable ode to the 'burbs and its humble denizens.
