Soup for One ★★ ½ 1982 (R)

Writer-director Kaufer's first film is a solid entry in the Woody Allenesque Manhattanite's angst genre. Young Jewish guy Rubinek pines for the woman of his dreams, finds her, is rejected, persists, gets her, wonders if she's what he wants after all. If you like Woody Allen, this is worth seeing. 84m/C VHS . Saul Rubinek, Marcia Strassman, Gerrit Graham, Richard Libertini, Andrea Martin; D: Jonathan Kaufer.
