The Book Thief
Synopsis: During World War II, Liesel goes to live with a new family in Germany. During this time, there is fear among the Jewish population, as they have been ostracized by Hitler and are fearful for their lives. Max, a young Jewish man, also comes to live with this new family, in hiding from Hitler's troops. Together, Liesl, Max, and the family learn things about themselves and each other, the importance of words, and how something so small could be so meaningful.
Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Talk about a good movie! The story sucks you in from the very beginning. At times, I was reminded of the movie, The Diary of Anne Frank, however, the story is about so many different things. I also love the point of view used. All in all, this was very moving, heartwarming, and enjoyable.
Side note: I am a reader, however, I have slacked off lately. This movie made me want to go home and dive into a book.
