Screening of Barney’s Version by Richard J. Lewis

Based on Mordecai Richler’s award winning novel–his last and, arguably, best–Barney’s Version is the warm, wise, and witty story of the politically incorrect life of Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti), who meets the love of his life (Rosamund Pike) at his wedding – and she is not the bride. Barney’s candid confessional spans three decades and two continents, and includes three wives, one outrageous father, and a charmingly dissolute best friend. Barney’s Version takes us through the many highs — and a few too many lows — of a long and colorful life with an unlikely hero at its center —the unforgettable Barney Panofsky.

Presented in relation to the exhibition Shalom Montreal: Stories and Contributions of the Jewish Community.
