Plot: Based on the New York City friendship between journalist Joseph Mitchell and Greenwich Village bohemian Joe Gould, JOE GOULD'S SECRET takes the viewer on a nostalgic journey back to 1940s New York. In 1942, an article entitled "Professor Seagull" by Joseph Mitchell (Tucci) was published in The New Yorker magazine. It told the story of Joe Gould (Holm), a homeless man who touted himself as an intellectual and the author of a massive work-in-progress called THE ORAL HISTORY OF OUR TIME. Mitchell, who first perceived Gould to be one of "the great, genuine, original American writers," learned in the course of their long-term friendship that much of the profile he'd written for THE NEW YORKER was false. Over 20 years later, Mitchell penned a second article, "Joe Gould's Secret." Director Tucci reconstructs a quaint 1940s New York City, complete with old-fashioned studded subway cars, beautiful brownstone-lined streets, dark moody pubs, and old-fashioned diners. Also included are a couple of cameos that add flavor to this basic New York tale--Sarandon plays artist Alice Neel, and Martin appears briefly as publisher Charlie Duell.
