In Detail

This father-daughter road trip set in 1990s Poland, follows Ruth (Lena Dunham), an American music journalist, and her father Edek (Stephen Fry), a charmingly stubborn Holocaust survivor, on a journey to his homeland.

While Ruth is eager to make sense of her family’s past, Edek embarks on the trip with his own agenda. This emotional, funny culture clash of two New Yorkers exploring post-socialist Poland is a powerful example of how reconnecting with family and the past can be an unexpected treasure. The film addresses the holocaust very differently to other recent films and TV series, using whimsy and anecdote instead of shock. The two leads make an appealing odd couple, with Dunham as the grumpy Walter Matthau-type to Fry’s ever optimistic Jack Lemmon.
