The Bronx, New York. While his extended family are all getting married, Marty (Ernest Borgnine) remains a stay-at-home bachelor in his mid 30's. On the verge of accepting a quiet life with his mother, he heads out one evening to the Stardust Ballroom, and tries not to ruin what could be his last chance at finding love.
Charming, sensitive and whip smart: Marty is a rare case of a film on social outsiders that refuses to pander or condescend. Written by Paddy Chayefsky (Network, Altered States) and Co-Produced by Burt Lancaster, this oft-overlooked gem picked up four Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Acting, and was the first film ever to win the Palme D'Or.
