Film Synopsis

Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten-year old girl, is taken with her parents by the French police as they go door-to-door arresting Jewish families in the middle of the night. 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 (Kristin Scott Thomas), an American journalist investigating the roundup. In her research, Julia stumbles onto a trail of secrets that link her to Sarah, and to questions about her own romantic future. Based on the New York Times best-selling novel, Sarah's Key, by Tatinana de Rosnay.

Director: Gilles Paquet-Brenner
Cast: Kristin Scott Thomas, Melusine Mayance, Niels Arestrup
