About the Film:

Nursing memories of the great, doomed love of his life, aging Leo Gursky reflects on his harrowing journey from Polish shtetl to New York City years ago. Across town, a teenager discovers a mysterious book and is inexorably driven to find its origins. The fate of these seemingly disparate souls link and intertwine. A rich tapestry spanning time and space, THE HISTORY OF LOVE asks if true, great love is possible. Sir Derek Jacobi and Elliott Gould spearhead a stellar international cast in this film adaptation Nicole Krauss’s best-selling novel.
