I have been looking forward to the release of The Book Thief on DVD & Blu-ray March 11th {since I missed it while it was in theaters}.  History has always been one of my favorite subjects to read about, particularly World War II because my grandfather fought during the war.  Peoples' stories during that time period fascinate me because of the strength and courage they had during this horrible time in our history.  

Although I haven't read the book, I have heard nothing but great things about this film and am excited to have a family movie night with my teenager.  I think it's very important to share and discuss the themes in the movie with our children so they can get a sense of how destructive war is and its impact.  It's equally as important for them to have an understanding of other cultures, races, and religions and empathy for fellow human beings so that a holocaust never happens again.  {If we don't learn from the past, we are most likely bound to repeat it.}



Synopsis:

Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” (Leonard Maltin, Indiewire) story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany.  When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel (Sophie NĂ©lisse) is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush* and OSCAR® Nominee Emily Watson**).  Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father.  When the couple then takes in Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him.  Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).

I haven't read the book. I did see the movie in the theater. It is fantastic. I spent 6 years in Europe as a nanny and this blows my mind.

I picked up The Book Thief about 4 years ago without knowing what I was going into and completely fell in love with the book. I have been recommending it every since. Unfortunately, living in a small town meant no theaters within a 3+ hours drive were playing it so I still haven't seen it but would love to! :)

I have not seen the movie or read the book. I heard about the book a few months ago and thought it sounded intriguing.
