TORONTO (Reuters) – To play a role some are already calling a tour de force in the film “Adam Resurrected,” Jeff Goldblum visited concentration camps and spoke to Holocaust survivors.

He also had to deal with the emotional toll of playing former nightclub clown Adam Stein, a man driven mad by the loss of his family in the Holocaust.

“It’s emotional and I knew I had to try to tell the story authentically, which depicts the worst thing that a fellow can go through, but which people have gone through,” Goldblum said in an interview at the Toronto Film Festival, where the film had its world premiere this week.

“I was crying a lot for much of the filming.”
