The Book Thief

In 1938, young orphan Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) arrives at the home of her new foster parents, Hans (Geoffrey Rush) and Rosa (Emily Watson). When Hans, a kindly housepainter, learns that Liesel cannot read, he teaches the child the wonders of the written language. Liesel grows to love books, even rescuing one from a Nazi bonfire. Though Liesel's new family barely scrape by, their situation becomes even more precarious when they secretly shelter a Jewish boy whose father once saved Hans' life.

November 26, 2013 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

In “The Book Thief,” it’s 1938 and the wrong time to be young in Germany. A little girl is adopted into a poor family, and the movie traces her trials and adjustments, balancing a personal story with the world going on outside. The resulting film has some wrong notes and touches of preciousness, but mostly it’s a moving and effective presentation of life under Nazism, as seen from an unusual angle.
