THE FAMILY JEWELS
Lewis | 1965 | US | 99m
*Intro by Alex Ross Perry
2:00 at BAM

“Playing seven roles in this antic yet sentimental comedy (which he also directed), Jerry Lewis makes the camera a prism to break out the divergent, and even conflicting, strands of his own character. The multitudinous performer who had already lived many lives before forty looks truly humbled as he dons livery and, in a surprising variety of ways, fuses his work with his life, ending with redemption—and with a fortune.”
Richard Brody, The New Yorker
