I use to really enjoy reading books, I actually still do, it's just I usually don't have time to read much. That being said, "THE BOOK THIEF" is available both as a book and as a movie. Because I am usually on a strict time schedule, watching movies just seems to fit better in my life. That is why I was excited that The Book Thief was being released in movie format.
Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel is adopted by a German couple. Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father. When the couple then takes in Max, a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him. Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival.
