The Book Thief Movie Opens Nov. 8

I got a chance to see a screening of The Book Thief last night and it was amazing.

Sophie Nelisse, who plays the lead character, Liesel, is incredible playing this part that spans from 1938 to 1943ish in a small town in Germany. Liesel comes to live with  foster parents, The Hubermanns played by Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson. Based on the hugely successful book,we follow her journey and experiences throughout the war.

Set against the back drop of Nazi Germany and all the inhumane policies of the time, the film still manages to have some laughs and light moments. Over all it is extremely moving and I highly recommend it for anyone. I saw it with a male friend who loved it as much as I did, and I plan to take my 9 year old daughter to see it.

The Book Thief opens November 8th.
