The Book Thief on Blu-Ray
This movie is based on a book but to be fair I will let you know that I have not read the book. I usually read the book before watching the movie but this time I didn't. I will note that I do want to read the book now. My family sat down for our weekly movie night. I just fell in love with the character Liesel and found my self taken into a glimpse of the world during World War II. The movie was great and enjoyed by all of us the scenery was natural with lots of detail and depth.
Synopsis:Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” (Leonard Maltin, Indiewire) story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush* and OSCAR® Nominee Emily Watson**). Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father. When the couple then takes in Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him. Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).
