(No longer in theaters)
Feb 17, 2012
A harrowing historical drama that tackles the infamous events of July 1942, when thousands of French Jews were crammed into a stadium before being herded off to camps. A diffuse approach tells the story through a variety of threads (including Laurent as a kind nurse who’s thrust into the middle of it all), which avoids easy narrative resolutions and arcs. But this is undeniably powerful stuff.
