In 1942, in Paris, French officials rounded up over 10,000 Jews and placed them in local camps. Eventually, over 8,000 were sent off to German concentration camps. As 10-year-old Sarah (Mélusine Mayance) and her family are being arrested, she hides her younger brother in a closet. After realizing she will not be allowed to go home, Sarah does whatever she can to get back to her brother. Over 60 years later,  In 2009, a journalist named Julia Jarmond (Kristin Scott Thomas) is  assigned to write a story on the Jews deported in 1942. When she moves into her father-in-law’s childhood apartment, she realizes it once belonged to the Strazynski family, and their daughter Sarah.

Kristin Scott-Thomas is excellent, as is the rest of the mainly French cast  in this is truly moving and eye-opening film about a very dark time in France’s recent past.
