Have you ever wanted to join a group of legendary comedians for lunch at a deli? Donna Kanter, a writer, producer, and director, takes you along in her film Lunch. This movie records a 40-year old institution: the biweekly lunch.
The camera takes us into Factor’s Famous Deli in Los Angeles. Sid Caesar, Hal Kanter, Gary Owens, and Carl Reiner are already at the table, eating matza ball soup. We get to be flies on the wall as the men catch up, practice jokes, and share a lifetime of wisdom.
For the past 40 years, a group of writers and directors has been meeting for lunch every other Wednesday. The members and their meeting places have changed over the years, but their appetites for the ties that nourish their friendships have remained. LUNCH goes beyond a single meal, and into the lives and successes of each comedy legend.
