A Bag of Marbles

Joseph is a young boy living in occupied France in the early 1940s. He’s not sure why he’s supposed to wear a yellow star on his jacket. His world is further turned upside-down when his parents tell him and his brother to leave home and flee the country together, his father warning him sternly to never tell anyone that he is Jewish.

Without the guidance of their parents, Joseph and his brother must rely on each other, the kindness of strangers, and their own wits to escape persecution and find safety in the war-torn countryside.

Based on the autobiographical novel by Joseph Joffo, A Bag of Marbles offers an inspiring tale on the power of hope and the gift of family. The film is not rated in the US, but would likely be PG-13, as it includes some mild violence and intense drama.
