THE BOOK THIEF, is a drama about a girl who is able to lift the spirits of a Jewish boy hiding from the Nazis. Based on Markus Zusak’s 2007 bestseller, the film features Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson and the young Sophie Nélisse as 9-year-old Liesel. Taken in by a couple in 1938 near Munich, she is taught to read and love books by her foster father, Hans Hubermann. Young Max, a Jewish refugee whom the family hides in the basement, asks Liesel to describe the outside world — and from there her talent as a storyteller grows.
