Really good, sad movie. The little girl who plays Sarah is excellent.

Sarah's Key manages to rise above the sort of misery-porn and cheap drama that Holocaust films can sometimes fall back on. Instead, it's powerfully compelling, emotionally authentic, and thought provoking. The drama is executed excellently, with great performances throughout, esp...

Wow, if the French are going the extra mile to try and get rid of Jews, then you know they weren't all that popular anywhere in the world. Seriously though, I really was intrigued by this film, learning that the Jews weren't all that popular anywhere, and by the end, I found myse...
