The Round-Up - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
REVOLVER Entertainment presents No.1 French box office smash hit The Round-Up on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday, July 18, 2011.
Roselyne Bosch’s star-studded and tense drama throws a powerful light on one of the most disturbing episodes in recent French history.
Based on meticulous research and told through the story of several Jewish families who find themselves taken unawares by the ferocious turn of events, the film portrays the few weeks in July 1942, when more than 13,000 Parisian Jews, including more than 4,000 children, were rounded up and taken to the now notorious Vel’ d’Hiv stadium.
A gripping story ignored until relatively recently, The Round-Up stars a prestigious cast including Jean Reno (The Da Vinci Code), Gad Elmaleh (Comme tom Pére) and Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds).
It is a certificate 15 and comes to DVD and Blu-ray on July 18, 2011.
