Sarah's Key (2010)
Friday 11th November 2011
Based on Tatiana de Rosnay's best-selling novel and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, Sarah'sKey, released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 28th November 2011 from StudioCanal, tells the story of Sarah (Melusine Mayance), a ten-year old girl taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night.
We're in Paris, July 1942. Desperate to protect her younger brother, Sarah locks him in a bedroom cupboard - their secret hiding place - and promises to come back for him as soon as they are released. Sixty seven years later: Sarah's story intertwines with that of Julia Jarmond (Oscar Nominee Kristin Scott Thomas: I've Loved You So Long, The English Patient), an American journalist investigating the roundup.
What starts off as research for an article ends up as a journey towards self-discovery as she stumbles upon a terrible secret and discovers the heart breaking story of this Jewish family forced out of their home, a home that is now her own. As she starts to see, live and breathe through Sarah, her world is turned upside down.
Kristin Scott Thomas received a Cesar Award nomination for her compelling performance in this role.
