“God, she’s beautiful.” That’s horribly sweatered Michael Caine in his least flattering—and maybe best—role, as Elliott, lusting after his sister-in-law, Barbara Hershey, right under the nose of his sweet wife, Hannah (a gentle Mia Farrow). But there’s another sister, Dianne Wiest, unable to get her life together, and going on the worst date of all time with Hannah’s hypochrondriac ex-husband, played by Woody—to CBGB and the Café Carlyle! (“I had a great evening. It was like the Nuremberg trials”). A joy beginning to end, featuring some of the best SoHo location shots of the eighties and an unforgettably irascible Max von Sydow.
