2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: Remember
Remember, by critically acclaimed director Atom Egoyan, tells the story of Zev Guttman (Christopher Plummer), a 90-year-old struggling with memory loss. Following his wife’s death, Zev receives a surprising package from his close friend Max.

With Max’s guidance, Zev embarks on a journey to settle the score with the man who destroyed both their lives. Also starring Dean Morris (Breaking Bad).
