Scott, film critic for The New York Times, and Daphne Merkin, journalist and former film critic for The New Yorker, join J. Hoberman, senior film critic for the Village Voice, in a conversation moderated by Liel Leibovitz, senior writer for Tablet Magazine at a look at some of the milestones in this long and complicated relationship between American Jews, the films they made and their influence on American popular culture.
