"Remember" is a gripping 2015 Canadian-German drama directed by Atom Egoyan. The film, which won the Canadian Screen Award for the Best Original Screenplay and was nominated the Best Motion Picture, stars the esteemed actors Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau. The film tells the story of a widower who, while struggling with memory loss, embarks on a cross-country odyssey with a fellow Holocaust survivor to find the former Nazi responsible for the deaths of their family members.
