Event Details

This film describes the fate of three generations of a Hungarian Jewish family, throughout the 20th century. The patriarch (Ralph Fiennes) becomes a prominent judge but is torn when his government sanctions anti-Jewish persecutions. His son converts to Christianity to advance his career as an Olympic hero but is caught up in the Holocaust. His grandson, after surviving war, revolution, loss and betrayal, realizes that his ultimate allegiance must be to himself and his heritage. 

Starring Ralph Fiennes, Rosemary Harris and Rachel Weisz, the film won three European Film Awards, including Best Actor for Fiennes, and three Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Motion Picture.

Presented by AJU's Whizin Center & Sigi Ziering Institute and the Consulate Generals of Hungary.
