Special Film Screening
Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 7:00pm
Iron Cross was honored with two awards from the Boston Film Festival – the visionary filmmaker award for director Joshua Newton and the “Best Young Actor” award for Alexander Newton.
The movie thriller stars the late Roy Scheider as Joseph, a retired New York Police office and Holocaust survivor, who travels to Nuremberg following the death of his wife to reconcile with his son Ronnie (Scott Cohen). The reunion is quickly overshadowed by Joseph’s insistence that living in the apartment above, under a false name, is the now aging SS commander (Helmut Berger) who murdered Joseph’s entire family during WWII. Certain of the neighbor’s true identity, Joseph draws his reluctant son into a plan to exact justice and vengeance. With flashbacks to the past, revealing young Joseph’s (Alexander Newton) narrow escape from the massacre and his teenage love for a heroic Polish girl, Kashka (Sarah Bolger), the story reaches a gripping and unforgettable climax.
