Director Woody Allen's Oscar-nominated comedy set in 1940s Brooklyn draws heavily on his youth -- a time when radio was king. Through vignettes woven together by music from the era, the film focuses on young Joe (Seth Green) and his houseful of relatives. His father (Michael Tucker) craves news from Europe, his aunt (Dianne Wiest) is obsessed with marriage, and his mother (Julie Kavner) is appalled that Joe has bought a secret decoder ring.
