The Key to Oscar-buzzed “Sarah’s Key”

HollywoodNews.com: The phenomenon of “Sarah’s Key” as book club darling and thrilling feature film illustrates: 65 years since liberation, the Holocaust still fascinates, perplexes, and vexes. Whatever anyone may say to the contrary: this subject is not going away.

At breakfast at the Crosby Street Hotel last week, novelist Tatiana de Rosnay, director Gilles Paquet-Brenner, actor Charlotte Poutrel, and publisher Heloise D’Ormesson discussed the impact of the Holocaust on the making of “Sarah’s Key.”

Keeping close to historic detail, “Sarah’s Key” is the story of a ten year old Jewish girl, arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel’ D’Hiv roundup of July 16, 1942.

Thinking she can save him, young Sarah (Melusine Mayance) locks her little brother in a secret cupboard, promising to return. She clutches the key even in the most horrific circumstance, ripped away from her mother at Beaune-la-Rolande, and awaiting transfer to the death camps.
