I really liked this film. For a film made almost 70 years ago, it didn't feel that old to me. Gentleman's Agreement is about antisemitism in NYC; some critics and viewers have argued that the message has not transcended the many decades that separate us from this issue, but I did not feel that way at all. The film and its message felt just as relevant today as it likely was during its own time. The performances are amazing and the script is terrific! I cannot recommend this film enough. Winner of 3 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director.

Not that good. It was preachy as hell and I wouldn't recommend anyone to see it. Yeah performances are great and it is a semi interesting concept but it won because of political reasons (though I can't say what was better in 1947). Skip it.

A little preachy, but overall a great film that deserved Best Picture for tackling the subject matter that it does.

Possibly good subject but bland movie

A film that fails to truly use what it has, and that is a potentially interesting subject. The idea that man pretends to be jewish to see how he is treated is poteintilly interesting, but the way it is done is rather haphazard. The is only one scene of actual extreme prejudice shown but that is done to the actually Jewish character. Most of the time people just do or same something somewhat anti-semitic and Gregory Peck gives them a stern look and this happends over and over again. May characters are not fully developed in fact all except the lead female, I thought her slight anti jewish sentiments were done better than the rest of the film. Most of it just feels like a lecture and it just does not work, and I think Kazan is a great director.
