Join us for an encore screening of our runner up for Audience Choice during the 2019 Houston Jewish Film Festival! Eighty-eight-year-old Jewish tailor Abraham Bursztein (Miguel Ángel Solá) runs away from Buenos Aires to Poland, in search of a friend who saved him in World War II. The Last Suit’s klezmer-driven score and mix of multiple languages is a globe-trotting surprise, a late-in-life road movie with planes, trains, and heart that has charmed worldwide audiences. Film at the J is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
