“The Last Suit” (Spain, Argentina 2018) depicts a Polish-born Holocaust survivor who decides to travel from Buenos Aires to Lodz to fulfill a promise he made nearly 70 years earlier. “This late-life road movie boasts plenty of poignant and humorous moments as the protagonist meets a variety of helpful characters along his journey,” note committee members. It has English subtitles.
