The Book ThiefAdapted from Markus Zusak’s novel, The Book Thief tells the story of Leisel, an extraordinary and courageous young girl sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany. Surrounded by war, Leisel finds solace in books, encouraged by her adoptive parents and Max, a Jewish refugee they are hiding under the stairs. A life-affirming story of survival and of the resilience of the human spirit, starring Sophie Nelisse, Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson.
