Remember

Presented by: Canadian Film Institute

This event is part of this year’s tribute to screen legend Christopher Plummer.

Thrilling yet emotionally powerful, Remember follows retired veteran Zev Guttman (Christopher Plummer), who is asked to fulfill his friend’s dying wish: to hunt down a Nazi that has escaped capture for decades following World War II, and thus close their painful, personal chapter of the Holocaust. But as Guttman suffers from memory loss, shining light on this history reveals secrets even darker than he could have expected.

A riveting journey that will keep you guessing until the very end, Remember’s engrossing twists and incredible performances are simply unforgettable.

“This is one of those rare mainstream releases that gets everything right, right down to its knockout ending.” — Scott Marks, San Diego Reader
