Wondering why times are missing?

Sarah's Key

Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient, Gosford Park and—lest we forget—Under the Cherry Moon) headlines this drama about a modern-day Parisian journalist who tries to unravel a decades-old mystery. With the help of some frequent flashbacks to World War II, we piece together the emotional story of a young girl whose family was torn apart during a notorious, government-backed roundup of French Jews back in 1942 (a real-life event that wasn't even acknowledged until 1995). As is typical for this kind of tale, the historical segments are more interesting than the contemporary ones. Based on the international bestseller by Tatiana de Rosnay. 111 minutes PG-13.
