Treasure (12A)

An impactful and moving film from writer and director Julia Von Heinz, exploring the legacy of Germany's Nazi past.

Lena Dunham and Stephen Fry go on the trail of family history in Treasure, a witty and offbeat culture clash journey through post-socialist Poland.

Adapting Lily Brett’s semi-autobiographical novel Too Many Men, Julia Von Heinz’s follow-up to And Tomorrow the Entire World grapples with the intergenerational legacy of the Holocaust. 

1991, after the fall of the Iron Curtain: American journalist Ruth (Dunham) and her bon vivant father Edek (Fry), a Holocaust survivor, go on a tour of Poland, including Warsaw, Krakow, Auschwitz and Łódź. Ruth wants to explore her roots; Edek has a more light-hearted agenda for the trip, and only when they visit his former home does his attitude begin to change. 

“Stephen Fry and Lena Dunham are the double-act you never knew you needed” ★★★★ The Times
