The Pawnbroker (Dual Format) (DVD+BLU)
Rod Steiger stars in this American drama directed by Sidney Lumet. With Geraldine Fitzgerald.
Sol Nazzerman is a Jewish pawnbroker living in Harlem, haunted by the horrific experience of being a PoW in a Nazi camp during the Holocaust.
A concentration camp survivor tries to make a fresh start in a poor New York neighbourhood. However, he is plagued by flashbacks of his experiences during the Holocaust, depriving him of any faith in humanity. Steeped in cynicism, he turns a blind eye to the antics of a local racketeer operating out of his shop – until a social worker tries to break through to him and reawaken his sense of right and wrong.
Drama, with Rod Steiger and Geraldine Fitzgerald.
