Sarah’s Key: The Movie

Filed under: Books Into Movies,Movies,Sarah's Key — audpelta @ 4:42 pm

Here is some thoughts from one of our Arizona  bloggers! Thank you Nancy!

AWESOME movie and they truly stayed true to the book (just like The Help I saw two weeks ago) which is usually my problem when I had read the book prior to seeing the movie. This was amazing and the cinematography made you feel like you were actually in the scene. The acting was terrific and the little girl who plays Sara was fantastic. She has such expression in her eyes. We got the chance after the preview to ask the adorable french jewish director questions and I asked if the author of the book had a lot to do with the movie. His answer was “We kinda gave birth to this movie together!” An interesting fact he told us was that  in this round-up they did not take French Jews, only the foreign Jews living in the French area. Problem they encountered was these foreigners had babies who were actually born in France and they did not know what to do about that situation – so just took them as well. The director said he had lost family in the Holocaust and because there are so many people who don’t know about this horrible event, he wanted to do this movie to bring it to their attention. So it opens July 29th and I believe The Help does not open til Aug 12th…so my recommendation is definitely see both with kleenex ready!!!
