Have you seen or read the Book Thief yet? This book and movie is taking the country by storm and I’m SO excited to have my copy that was delayed slightly during our move. If you haven’t heard about this film yet, here’s a little bit about it.
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).
We’re giving away one copy of the film to one lucky reader. See below for how to enter, plus watch for our review of this film coming later this weekend!
