Synopsis

Story of an eccentric New York family in crisis in the summer of 1942. On the run from a loan shark, a frightened and weak-willed father leaves his two boys with their domineering grandmother, who runs a candy store in Yonkers. The effect of the old woman's tyranny over two generations of offspring becomes evident as she coldheartedly attempts to control not only their lives but also that of her mentally challenged middle-aged daughter, Bella, who desperately yearns for love and independence. The boys are forced to live by their stern grandmother's rules until their gangster uncle, comes to town one night and goes into hiding in the family home. Uncle Louie ends up helping both the boys and Bella understand their aging grandmother and realize the importance of acceptance and love, despite the hardship of life in Yonkers.

A well acted movie, Dryfuss has always been a fav of mine! Mike was excellent as the younger brother. The movie as a whole was great, I even liked the G-Mother character! It's been a while since I saw the movie, but I'd watch it again anytime!

It is a good movie! I remember I was a little 11 year old kid in 1993, I saw the cars around town and they were at Murphy Theatre when my dad and I drove to town and saw the Hollywood movie "Lost in Yonkers" there. It was awesome. I'm glad they were at my hometown for acting for a movie.
