1990 - Ruth, a neurotic businesswoman from New York, takes her father Edek, a charmingly stubborn Holocaust survivor on a journey to Poland to make sense of her family's past. Edek's hesitation to confront his past and his often odd demeanor cause more than just one dispute between him and his daughter. The trip unfolds into a story that encapsulates the emotion of discovery and drama with humor. Based on the best-selling autobiographical novel TOO MANY MEN by New York-based writer Lily Brett.

    Refreshingly Real
    It's really refreshing to me seeing a movie that's just sincere. Nothing stylized or saccharine, just really powerful dialogue and story unfolding naturally while working on so many levels. It feels like this movie exists in the real world. I'm usually skeptical about fiction that incorporates the holocaust because sometimes it's used as an unnecessary gimmick, but every element about this story is vitally important. The conversations about processing generational trauma are breath-taking. The two lead actors, Lena and Stephen, really made me empathize with their characters and they both deserve Oscar nominations. Also, this is based on a true story and I love when movies based on true stories show photos of the real-life people during the credits.
