The Book Thief

This simple, tasteful adaptation of Markus Zusak's beloved novel finds Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson acting as foster parents to protect an orphaned girl from the horrors of World War II Germany. The stepparents also manage to hide a well-educated Jewish refugee under the stairs of their home--which is where our young heroine (Sophie Nélisee) learns about the power of books. Naturally she starts stealing them to protect them from the book-burning Nazis. 131 minutes PG-13.
