Sarahs_Key_poster_WebJewish Community Center of Greater New Haven and Best Video Film & Cultural Center present a screening of the 2010 film “Sarah’s Key” as part of the Beckerman Jewish Film Series. The screening takes place at BVFCC on Monday, May 16, at 7 PM. Admission is $7 ($5 for JCC members). Best Video founder Hank Paper will introduce the film and lead the optional post film talk-back.

In 2002 Paris an American journalist, assigned to write a story about France’s then little–known round-up of Jews in ’42, makes a startling discovery in her father-in-law’s childhood apartment that draws her into unraveling the mystery of a ten-year-old’s truly amazing story sixty years earlier.

This film about family secrets and the comfort of strangers, offers a multi-award winning performance by the non-pareil Kirsten Scott Thomas – with Aidan Quinn and Melusine Mayance as Sarah, whose story will defy your beliefs, raise your spirits, and hold you spellbound to the final minutes.
