Adapted from the novel by Anne Michaels, Jeremy Podeswa's drama stars Stephen Dillane as a Toronto-based writer struggling with demons from his Polish past. When the Nazis murdered his parents and dragged away his sister, he was rescued by a Greek archaeologist before being taken after the war to Canada. Here, Jakob, who has become a writer struggling to articulate his childhood horrors, must exorcise the ghosts of his past if he is to close a traumatic chapter of his life and find serenity in the present. As much about memory as about the Holocaust, FUGITIVE PIECES is a touching testimony to the power of remembrance and redemption, and the high quality of cinematography, acting and musical score play their full part in creating a memorable film.
