The story is well paced to hold one's interest...
It is just this short sightedness, this emotional skimpiness, that makes Hester Street a truly "little movie." It is not a matter of size, really, but of depth.
Joan Micklin Silver displays a sure hand for her first pic.
An unimaginative camera and misty monochromes do little beyond conveying some self-conscious period recreation.
There is nothing very original about Hester Street except its loveliness.
Hester Street is compromised by preciousness and oversimplification, but it makes a pleasant and efficient entertainment.
I think Hester Street just gets itself into the 'don't-miss-this-tiny-gem' category. It is most notable for the contrasting beauty and performances of Carol Kane and Dorrie Kavanaugh.
This marvellously evocative study of Jewish immigrant life in turn-of-the-century New York, mainly told in delightfully subtitled Yiddish, features an outstanding lead performance from the Oscar-nominated Carol Kane.
Neglected piece of history receives atmospheric examination as old customs are replaced by assimilation.
a worthy attempt and important as an example of women's efforts to finally carve their own place in the world of filmmaking, but it's just not a great movie.
Though lacking plot or in-depth characterization, Silver's ultra-modest debut is likable, in large measure due to her channeling of 1970s feminist approach to a little documented turn of the century immigreants' yarn
Worthwhile as a document of life in New York's Jewish tenements, but its miniscule budget pinches and, for this reason and others, its period detail is sometimes unconvincing.
A look at early "feminism" as we have the story of a woman trying to exceed traditional roles to embrace the lifestyle of a new country. This however is a dull rendition.
