The Book ThiefBased on the beloved international bestselling book, The Book Thief 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 as she finds them. With the help of her new parents and a secret guest under the stairs, she learns to read and creates a magical world that inspires them all. The Book Thief is lackadaisical and episodic, with an affecting spirit brought to life by the stellar performances of Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and Sophie Nélisse as well as exceptional period detail.
