Fiddler On the Roof
"An outstanding accomplishment in every category," (Boxoffice) this lavishly produced -- and critically-acclaimed -- screen adaptation of the international stage sensation tells the life-affirming story of Tevye (Topol), a poor milkman whose love, pride and faith help him face oppression in turn of the century czarist Russia. Tevye provides for five unmarried daughters and a sharp-tongued wife. Faced with mounting financial strain and growing anti-Semitism, Tevye strives -- like a fiddler on the roof -- to maintain a balance despite the precarious nature of his situation. Nominated for 8 Academy Awards,® including Best Actor (Topol), Best Supporting Actor (Leonard Frey), Best Picture and Director (Norman Jewison) and taking home 3 (Best Cinematography, Best Music, Best Sound), "Fiddler on the Roof" is a universal story of hope, love and acceptance -- a "stunning, joyful and jubilant" (New York Daily News) musical masterpiece!
