BERLIN (AP) — Stephen Fry and Lena Dunham play a convincing father and daughter in German director Julia von Heinz’ first English-language movie, “Treasure.” The comedy-drama set in post-communist Poland had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival over the weekend. The film shows the pair on a road trip to Poland to retrace family history. Fry plays a Holocaust survivor who reluctantly accompanies his daughter, a New York journalist. Both actors say they connected with their Jewish heritage. Von Heinz says she wanted to explore the unsaid aftermath of a parent’s traumatic experiences.
