Sarah’s Key (2010) Rated PG-13

Sarah's Key

A journalist goes in search for a girl and her family whose lives were ripped apart during the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup in 1942. Based on an adaptation of the novel with the same title by Tatiana de Rosnay. Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Mélusine Mayance, Niels Arestrup, Aidan Quinn

This film takes on the holocaust in France.  The movie takes on both sides of the story. We see what the Jews went through but we also saw the French side. This is a fascinating tale that weaves two families together and changes both with Sarah’s story. This is one of the best films I have seen and it tells an untold story of the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup in Paris. Another unspeakable act of the holocaust. This is a must see film, that shows how we as humans can be both empathetic and caring but also be the most evil beings.
