Next Stop, Greenwich Village

Movie Summary

Director:
Paul Mazursky
Released:
1976
Rating:
R
Next Stop, Greenwich Village is the 1976 comedy drama from celebrated actor-director Paul Mazursky (Harry and Tonto, Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice). Film functions as a semi-autobiographical tale which is an often nostalgic, sentimental look back at a magical place called Greenwich Village, during a still innocent, idealistic early 1950's. The story revolves around young Larry Lapinsky (Lenny Baker) who is moving out of his parents' apartment in Brooklyn and moving to Manhattan to become the next Marlon Brando. Viewers are introduced to his bohemian friends; all of whom are trying to evolve into a true Greenwich Village 'artist' or is it 'artiste.' Viewers also meet Larry's parents, who may just be the original stereotypes of the smothering Jewish mother, and quiet but authoritative, Jewish father. Larry's mother is the type who will travel 20 miles out of her way, and tell her son that she was 'in the neighborhood.' She is also an overbearing button pusher, trying to control Larry and his relationship with his girlfriend.moreless
