The Santa Barbara International Film Festival will open on January 27 with the stateside debut of Gilles Pacquet-Brenner's film fest veteran Sarah's Key, starring Kristin Scott Thomas.
“From its triumphant unveiling in Toronto to its recent accolades in France and Tokyo, SARAH’S KEY has been stunning audiences, and we’re proud to open our 26th edition with it," said SBIFF executive director Roger Durling. Based on the international bestseller by Tatiana de Rosnay, the film weaves two different stories, one set in World War II Paris and the other in the present. Sarah’s Key will open in spring 2011 via Weinstein Company.
