The Book Thief Looks Good

The Book Thief looks really good! It’s based on Markus Zusak’s best-selling novel from 2007 and is about a young girl in Nazi Germany. She seeks refuge in stolen books while her family hides a young Jewish man in the basement.

The film is directed by Brian Percival. It stars Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Sophie Nélisse and Ben Schnetzer. The Book Thief comes out in November.

This is the international trailer for the film.
