Reel Alternative screens Sarah's Key

    Sarah’s Key is a film starring Kristin Scott Thomas as a journalist obsessed by the story of a Jewish girl called Sarah, whose story of sacrifice and love during the Nazi occupation of France reveals the grim realities of French collaboration.  She locks her infant brother in a cupboard to hide him from police rounding up Jews to send to French labor camps, a fate she and her parents cannot escape. But Sarah makes a daring daylight escape and begins her walk to Paris to find and save her brother. Cut to modern day: Thomas’ focus on the riddle of Sarah’s later life takes its toll on her marriage and career.
    Sarah’s Key is based on the New York Times bestselling book by Tatiana de Rosnay. It will make you cry – and remember.
