Head inside to take a look…
Brian Percival directed the whole thing from a script written by Michael Petroni (based on the beloved bestselling book), which revolves around a young girl who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a new family in World War II Germany.
Described as an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul, The Book Thief stars young Sophie Nelisse as Liesel, while Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson play her parents.
Here’s more about the story:
It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.
The Book Thief is set to open on November 15th, 2013.
