The Book Thief
Genre: Drama, War
There is power in a story. Its ability to take you to a new world, forget your problems, remember someone elses. Leisel learns to read and love stories while living in Germany during World War II. Her adopted parents take in a Jewish refugee that encourages Liesel to remember the stories.
This movie is an adaptation of the book, and I must say its one of the few I love the movie as much, if not more, than the book itself. Its such a powerful story, and one that everyone needs to know. I loved how the characters were so real. In most World War II the people all seem so cruel and inhuman (which I am sure many of them were) but when we read stories of people doing kind and generous things, so its nice to be reminded of the mercy that existed in such horrible times.
