UNION —  The Vose Library is showing a 1970s Jewish romantic comedy on Monday, January 9, at 7 p.m.

A Jewish comedy writer ponders the modern quest for love and his past romance with a tightly-wound WASP singer. He knows that it's not easy to find a mate when the options include pretentious New York intellectuals and lifestyle-obsessed Rolling Stone writers, but la-di-dah-ing Annie seems different.

Along the rocky road of their coupling, Alvy weighs in on such topics as endless therapy, movies vs. TV, the absurdity of dating rituals, anti-Semitism, drugs, and, in one of the best set pieces, repressed Midwestern WASP insanity vs. crazy Brooklyn Jewish boisterousness. 1977, PG.
