The new poster for The Book Thief has the movie's breakout star, Sophie Nelisse clutching a book as if her life depended on it. And it could very well be, since Death narrates the story of her life, one filled with love for books, sharing them, preserving them from destruction. Her adopted parents share her love (Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson), but extend it out to humankind, daring to hide a Jewish boy (Ben Schnetzer) from the Nazis.
The Book Thief is based on the novel by Marcus Zusak, an international bestseller published in 2005 with over 2.5 million loyal readers. Brian Percival (Downton Abbey), a notable BBC TV veteran directs from a script by Michael Petroni.
