New York Stories (Special Edition)
Directed by Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Francis Ford Coppola
An anthology of wildly diverse, star-studded short films about life in the big city, New York Stories features the creative collaboration of three of America’s greatest filmmakers, Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver), Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) and Woody Allen (Annie Hall). Martin Scorsese’s Life Lessons – Nick Nolte (North Dallas Forty) stars in this passionate tale of a world-famous painter torn between his obsession for his art and his infatuation with his sturdy but unresponsive assistant (Rosanna Arquette, Desperately Seeking Susan). Francis Ford Coppola’s Life Without Zoe – Talia Shire (Rocky) and Giancarlo Giannini (Seven Beauties) star in this whimsical fantasy as the childlike parents of Zoe, a very grown-up 12-year-old girl who brings charm and magic to life in New York. Woody Allen’s Oedipus Wrecks – Woody Allen (Take the Money and Run) directs and stars in this hilarious comedy as a neurotic lawyer who cannot escape the one woman who looms large in his life: his mother (Mae Questel, the legendary voice of Betty Boop). Mia Farrow (Rosemary’s Baby) and Julie Kavner (Radio Days) star as the “other women” who further complicate his situation.
