TRAIN TO ZAKOPANÉ
2018, Rainbow Releasing, 115 min, USA, Dir: Henry Jaglom

A compelling love story that shows how compassion and intolerance can intersect, Henry Jaglom’s new film is based on actual events that occurred to the writer-director’s father while traveling through Poland in 1928. With anti-Semitism rife in much of Europe, a successful Russian businessman (Mike Falkow) takes a train to Warsaw and meets a captivating young Polish army nurse (Tanna Frederick). But he is Jewish, and faces a life-changing dilemma when he discovers that the nurse he is drawn to - and who is enchanted by him - is fiercely anti-Semitic. The actual train ride across Poland, and the weekend stopover in the resort town of Zakopané that followed, haunted Jaglom's father for a lifetime.
