Duddy Kravitz is out to make a success of his life. He has just graduated from high school and he has a lot to learn, but not the time. Set in Montreal, Canada, the film follows Duddy’s attempt to purchase a plot of land and his attempts to make a killing developing it. His grandfather believes, “A man without land is nobody.”
Along the way, Duddy breaks every rule to succeed. You will want him to win because he is funny, caustic, and brash. Yet you will be shocked as he uses people and schemes to prove himself.
