The Book Thief

  • What it's about: A married couple (Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson) take in a young girl in this drama set in Nazi Germany. The man teaches her to read and write, but their bonding is interrupted by the threat of war.
  • Why we're interested: Markus Zusak's novel is a classic, and I'm always interested to see books adapted for the big screen, even ones that will most definitely make me sob.
  • When it opens: Nov. 15
  • Watch the trailer for The Book Thief.
