Movie Info

Screenwriter Mordecai Richler's autobiographical tale stars James Woods as noted author Joshua Shapiro, whose life is falling apart before his very eyes: his WASP-y wife Pauline (Gabrielle Lazure) has walked out, his brother-in-law Kevin (Michael Sarrazin) has just passed away, and the media is claiming Joshua is involved in a gay romance with fellow writer Sidney Murdoch (Kenneth Campbell).

Critic Reviews for Joshua Then and Now

All Critics (3)

Radiates energy. Alan Arkin's zany performance as Reuben is a comic tour de force.
