Minnie and Moskowitz


Gena Rowlands, Seymour Cassel, Val Avery, Timothy Carey,

Cassavetes’s take on the screwball comedy stars Gena Rowlands as Minnie, a beautiful, refined museum employee unlucky in love. When a blind date that starts badly and gets worse propels her into the path of parking lot attendant Seymour Moskowitz (Seymour Cassel), he is instantly smitten and sets out to win her heart. Their wild trajectory through Los Angeles and in and out of each other’s arms is full of accidents and injuries both physical and emotional. A brilliant exploration of the pain and pitfalls of human communication and the search for love.
