Movie Info

Boardwalk is a film about love, violence, and survival. Married for 50 loving years, David (Lee Strasberg) and Becky (Ruth Gordon) have lived in the same Coney Island neighborhood for most of their life together. But the area is not what it used to be, and their children ask them to move. A powerful and determined man, David states, "I left one country, I'm not about to leave another. This is where I choose to live and nobody, but nobody, is going to make me leave." But Becky becomes ill and David's cafeteria and synagogue are vandalized by thugs. David must make his final stance.

Critic Reviews for Boardwalk

All Critics (3)

An odd mixture of understated drama and allegory for urban decay, but it's never less than compelling thanks to the performances of the two stars.
