Summary

Based on Mordecai Richler’s beloved novel, the film charts the rise of young Duddy Kravitz (Dreyfuss), a brash, working-class Jewish kid from Montreal, determined to make a name for himself — no matter what it takes. Taking to heart his grandfather’s advice that “a man without land is nothing,” Duddy gets involved in a series of get-rich-quick schemes in order to purchase a lakeshore property in the Laurentian mountains.

As his business ventures backfire in different ways, Duddy must come to terms with the fact that he’s attaining his goals at the expense of something more important — friendship and love. Both funny and touching, The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz is a true Canadian classic.

The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, and won Film of the Year at the Canadian Film Awards.

Cast Richard Dreyfuss, Micheline Lanctôt, Jack Warden, Randy Quaid
