Fugitive Pieces: still photosFugitive Pieces

Canada, 2007.  105 min.
Director: Jeremy Podeswa

To live with ghosts requires solitude.

Beautifully adapted from Anne Michael's award-winning novel, Fugitive Pieces is a deeply moving tale of grief, redemption and the burden of memory.

As a boy in Poland, Jakob (Stephen Dillane) must cope with the Nazi murder of his family and the disappearance of his beloved sister, Bella (Nina Dobrev).  Rescued by a kindly Greek archeologist, Jakob eventually emigrates to Canada and begins a new life as a writer.  Still, nothing - his writing, his marriage - can save Jakob from crippling feelings of guilt and loss.  Only by coming to terms with his past will he finally be able to embrace the present.
