(2015, Canada / Germany) Dir. Atom Egoyan
To mark Holocaust Memorial Day this month, we screen this classy psychological thriller starring the magnificent Christopher Plummer with Martin Landau. Zev and Max were both prisoners in Auschwitz and lost family members in the Shoah. One is wheelchair bound and the other has memory loss, but they make a pact to hunt down across continents the guard responsible for changing their lives. The Wiesenthal Centre has identified four possible suspects who need to be checked out. A final twist changes the nature of the justice they thought they were seeking, and makes us question our own assumptions. Magnificent acting and edge of the seat suspense make this an extraordinary film.
