THE LAST SUIT / El último traje
NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
In Argentine filmmaker Pablo Solarz’s bittersweet road movie, Jewish tailor Abraham Bursztein (Miguel Ángel Solá) is being put out to pasture by his children, who’ve sold his Buenos Aires house and booked him into a retirement home. Refusing to bow to family pressure, he sets off on an adventure halfway around the world. Undeterred by travel mishaps and with help from a cast of kindly strangers along the way, the sharply-dressed suit maker travels by train across Europe to Poland, seeking out an old friend. Heartfelt and charming, with a wonderful comedic flavor, The Last Suit reminds us of the importance of family, friendship, and keeping your word. Winner, Santa Barbara Film Festival Nueva Vision Award for Spain/Latin America Cinema; and Audience Awards at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, Miami Jewish Film Festival, and San Diego Latino Film Festival.
