Summary Based on the best-selling novel by Tatiana de Rosnay, Sarah's Key is a touching, gripping and beautifully told drama featuring Kristin Scott Thomas in a Cesar-nominated performance. Paris, 1942. The Starzynski family - Wladyslaw, Rywka, ten-year-old Sarah and little Michel - occupy an apartment in the Jewish quarter. One day, their morning routine is broken by a sharp pounding on the door and by a group of French policemen announcing their intention to take the family away. Upon seeing the policemen, the resourceful Sarah locks Michel in a hidden cupboard, making him promise that he will not try to escape... Paris, present day. Julia Jarmond (Kristin Scott Thomas) is an American journalist living in the French capital with her husband, Bertrand (Frederic Pierrot), and their teenage daughter. While Bertrand excitedly prepares the renovation of the Parisian apartment his grandparents own, Julia is busily researching a story she is writing on the notorious Vel d'Hiv round ups of 1942. After learning that Bertrand's family acquired the apartment during the war, Julia's inquisitive nature forces her to uncover the truth.--Kanopy
