Interview with Rose Bosch - Director and Writer of La Rafle (The Round Up)

I loved the book Sarah's Key (the movie not as much) but it revealed to me another story of the Holocaust and World War Two that I knew nothing about - the Vel' de' Hiv' roundup of Jews in Paris. La Rafle is another take on this told from the perspective of the children and a nurse who took care of them under the most difficult conditions. Melanie Laurent gives a terrific performance as Annette Monod a nurse who does everything she can to help these children all the while not knowing what will happen to them - or to her. It opens in NYC and LA on Friday.
