Review:
The Plot: In modern-day Paris, a journalist (Kristen Scott Thomas) finds her life becoming entwined with a young girl whose family was torn apart during the notorious Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup in 1942.

THE BUZZ: Author Tatiana De Rosnay’s best-seller (a thoroughly maudlin story) has been fashioned into Oscar bait for Kristen Scott Thomas, who pieces together a horrific event in occupied France during WWII. Meanwhile, it’s amazing to me that director Gilles Paquet-Brenner’s last film was the sucky Mischa Barton horror flick.
