Sarah's Key Getting Re-Released on November 4th
The Weinstein Company President of Distribution, Erik Lomis, announced today that Sarah's Key will be re-released on November 4th on 300 screens across the Us. Sarah's Key opened in late July and has grossed over $7 million.

"Audiences responded to Sarah's Key for its great story, its emotional impact, and its historical importance; and the power of that word-of-mouth made it one of the most successful indie releases of the summer. We know there's an even bigger audience for the movie, and that's why we're re-releasing it now, in a wider pattern, and just in time for awards consideration," said Lomis.

Based on Tatiana De Rosnay's best-selling novel, Sarah's Key is the story of an American journalist living in Paris, Julia Jarmond (Kristin Scott Thomas), whose research for an article about the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup in 1942 in France ends up turning her own world upside down. Sarah's Key has been on

Film: Movie Review: Sarah’s Key

Seen separately, the two main threads of Sarah’s Key look awfully familiar: One offers a tear-jerking child’s-eye view of the Holocaust, packed with all the anguish and horror the setting allows, while the other centers on a determined journalist digging up the truth, ignoring the cost to herself and her increasingly resentful family. But Tatiana De Rosnay’s novel uses them to comment intelligently on each other, and director Gilles Paquet-Brenner (again co-scripting with Serge Joncour; the two adapted Joncour’s novel Uv together in 2007) expands her vision, dramatizing her events convincingly, if not always creatively.

Weinstein nabs U.S. rights to 'Sarah's Key'
The Weinstein Co. has swooped in and scooped up all U.S. rights to Gilles Paquet-Brenner's "Sarah's Key," starring Kristin Scott Thomas.

The company had been tracking the film since Harvey Weinstein saw a promo reel in Cannes in May, and the actual deal was concluded last week.

But that still allowed TWC to stake a claim for the first buy actually announced at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Based on Tatiana de Rosnay's bestselling novel "Elle s'appelait Sarah," which was adapted by Paquet-Brenner and Serge Joncour, the film follows Scott Thomas, an American living in Paris, as she researches the arrest of Jewish families in Paris in 1942. In the process -- as the French and English-language movie unfolds in parallel story lines -- she discovers she shares a connection with a 10-year-old girl, played by Melusine Mayance, who was caught up in the arrests.
