Hollywoodnews.com: The 26th Santa Barbara International Film Festival has selected Gilles Paquet-Brenner’s “Sarah’s Key” as its opening night film. The French-language drama stars Kristin Scott Thomas as a U.S. journalist living in Paris. The festival runs Jan. 27-Feb. 6.
“Key” is a modern mystery that finds a reporter researching a Holocaust story that she believes has a connection to her personal past. The film played the Toronto International Film Festival in the fall, and received favorable reviews from the trades.
The Weinstein Co. plans to release “Sarah’s Key” in the spring. In the meantime, both Scott Thomas and Paquet-Brenner are expected to be at the festival next month for the opening-night festivities.
