The Book Thief
Based on the internationally bestselling book, this film starring Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and Sophie Nélisse tells the story of an extraordinary, spirited young girl sent to live with a foster family in WWII Germany. Intrigued by the only book she brought with her, she begins collecting books. With the help of her adoptive parents and a secret guest under the stairs, she learns to read and creates a magical world that inspires them all.
