Join movie critic Carrie Rickey for a cinematic celebration that stirs up memories of summer camp, family holidays, bungalows, and, of course, a little summertime romance. Critically-acclaimed, award-winning, and incredibly popular, these films memorialize and explore a quintessential part of the American Jewish experience: summer.
Happy 25th Anniversary, Dirty Dancing! Highly quotable with an addictive soundtrack, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey ignite the screen in this timeless coming-of-age classic set in a 1960s Jewish Catskills resort. There is a reason that this is a favorite film for everyone - it tells a really good story, and it does it in a way that lends itself to repeat viewing. Don't be afraid to sing along. You know you want to. Directed by Emile Ardolino.
