Set in France during WWII, WAR OF THE BUTTONS tells the tale of two rival groups of kids from neighboring villages. Pre-teen rebel Lebrac (Jean Texier) leads a spirited group of kids in a pint-sized “war” where the victory comes from capturing the enemies’ buttons, belts, and laces – forcing them to return home ragged to face their mothers’ reprimand. When Violette (Ilona Bachelier), a young Jewish girl, comes to town to hide from the Nazis, Lebrac befriends her and the children put their own conflicts aside to protect their new friend from the very real war happening around them. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Christophe Barratier (The Chorus, Original Song) and produced and co-written by Thomas Langmann (Academy Award® winner for The Artist, Best Picture).
