Sarah's Key this Saturday night
Julia, an American journalist living with her French husband and teenage daughter in Paris, becomes obsessed with the story of a 10 year old French Jewish girl, Sarah, who once lived in the same house, but, in 1942, was rounded up with her parents to be sent to the concentration camps. A secret cupboard is at the centre of this powerful story linking Julia and Sarah, past and present.
