Based on the best selling novel of the same name by Markus Zusak director Brian Percival's film starts Sophie Nelisse as a young girl adjusting to living with adopted parents in WW II Germany. Sophie learns to read living with her adopted parents then begins stealing or borrowing without asking books to read to them and others. As always any story about life in Germany from 1937 until then end of the war in 1945 has much more to it than reading books to other people. Sophie is magnificent in her role as well as Geoffrey Rush as her adopted father.
The video is excellent with lots of details and depth colors are very bright with a natural look to them. The audio is also very active especially when the allies are bombing Germany.
This is a very very good movie especially if you enjoy stories about true characters and how they lived in WW II.
Sorry about the spoiler I want everyone to know there is so much more to this movie than book reading.
