Autumn Hearts: A New Beginning Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

EMOTIONAL ARITHMETIC, 2007, Celluloid Dream, 99 min. The film explores the tragic toll war can have on its survivors — even decades later. Based on a book by Canadian writer Matt Cohen, the film stars Susan Sarandon as a survivor of a Jewish internment camp in France during WWII who has gone on to a quiet life with her husband David (Christopher Plummer) and son (Roy Dupuis) in Quebec's Eastern Townships. A flood of emotions and memories about her past confinement surface when she learns that the dissident who protected her in the camp (Max von Sydow) is still alive. She invites him to visit her, but is shocked when he is accompanied by another survivor of the camp: her first love (Gabriel Byrne).
