A CALL TO REMEMBER

Aspect ratio: 1.33:1

Sound format: Stereo

1967: After rebuilding their lives in America, two Jewish holocaust survivors (Blythe Danner and Joe Mantegna) are forced to confront their dark past when fate plays a cruel trick...

Unusual drama from TV specialist Jack Bender (KILLING MR. GRIFFIN, "The David Cassidy Story", etc.) in which unhappy history has a tragic bearing on the present (in this case 1967, at a time when America had become embroiled in a war no less dangerous than the one in which Danner and Mantegna suffered their worst indignities). Danner takes center stage as the strong mother laid low by an appalling twist of fate, while teenage son David Lascher (TV's "Sabrina the Teenage Witch") represents the viewpoint of a generation untouched by their parents' experiences in occupied Europe. Mantegna is dignified in a crucial supporting role, and there's an early appearance by Kevin Zegers (TRANSAMERICA) as the younger sibling slowly waking to the full horror of Nazi war crimes.
