Sunrise Theater Presents 'Sarah's Key'
The Sunrise Theater's SunFlix series bridges the September-October transition with an Art House/International drama in English and French: "Sarah's Key," about an American journalist who uncovers a family secret that links her forever to the destiny of a young Jewish girl.
One critic called it "a poignant tale of two females confronted by the madness of history." The film is adapted from Tatiana de Rosnay's novel and stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Niels Arestrup, Melusine Mayance, Frederic Pierrot and Michel Duchaussoy. "Sarah's Key" will be shown Sept. 29 through Oct. 3 on weekdays at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. It is rated PG-13 and runs for 110 minutes.
Julia Jarmond, an American journalist married to a Frenchman, is commissioned to write an article about the notorious Vel d'Hiv roundup, which took place in Paris, in 1942. She stumbles upon a family secret which will link her forever to the destiny of a young Jewish girl, Sarah. Julia learns that the apartment she and her husband Bertrand plan to move into was acquired by Bertrand's family when its Jewish occupants were dispossessed and deported 60 years before. She resolves to find out what happened to the former occupants: Wladyslaw and Rywka Starzynski, parents of 10-year-old Sarah and 4-year-old Michel. The more Julia discovers - especially about Sarah, the only member of the Starzynski family to survive - the more she uncovers about Bertrand's family, about France and, finally, herself.
The historic Sunrise Theater, located at 250 NW Broad St. in Southern Pines, is nonprofit. Ticket prices are $7 for all shows. Refreshments, including beer and wine, are available.
