A bona fide comedy classic, The Plot Against Harry wowed festival audiences in New York and Toronto nearly 20 years after its original less than stellar preview.
Now available in a new 35mm print, The Plot Against Harry follows small-time con man Harry Plotnick (played by Martin Priest) who was just released from prison. Back on the street, his life is one hilarious complication after another. The neighborhood he and his racketeer friends once controlled has been taken over by other gangs. He crashes into a car carrying his ex-wife and family, bringing his adult daughter and a daughter he never knew he had into his life.
It’s a gangster film, a comedy, and a memorable portrait of the community of Eastern European and Russian Jews that settled in New York City’s Lower East Side. (81 mins., 35mm)
