Brian Percival directs this Academy Award-nominated adaptation of the popular novel by Markus Zusak starring Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush and Sophie NĂ©lisse. The film tells the story of Liesel Meminger (NĂ©lisse), an eccentric young girl who is adopted by working-class German couple Hans and Rosa Hubermann (Rush and Watson) as World War II looms. When Jewish refugee Max (Ben Schnetzer) arrives at the family’s door they risk their own safety to shelter him from the Nazis. It marks the beginning of an unusual friendship between Max and Liesel, who shares her love of stories with Max and begins stealing books for him to read during his confinement. However, with the crackdown on Jews intensifying, the world of words may not be enough to shelter Max and Liesel from the tumultuous political reality that engulfs them. John Williams received an Oscar nomination for his score.
