Movie Preview: Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes in The Reader

This historical drama starring Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes was recently given an earlier release date of Dec. 10, 2008 (in limited release), possibly in the hopes that the movie will prove to be Oscar bait. From the looks of this trailer, that logic may be good.

The Reader takes place in postwar Germany where "a young man's decades-long obsession with an older woman runs headlong into a war crimes trial, where he learns an awful truth."

Winslet appears to be perfect for this role, and I was really impressed with The Hours, which is another of director Stephen Daldry's films, so I'm curious to see this movie. To watch the trailer,

I'm so excited to see Kate Winslet again and in two great roles in Revolutionary Road and The Reader. So glad she ended up playing the part in the Reader instead of botox-faced, stiff Nicole Kidman or I wouldn't be this excited to see the Reader. Winslet for the Oscar!

I think this one will be very good, Kate Winslet is always good and the story sounds very interesting.

I love Kate Winslet and this looks good but what kind of war crimes are they talking about? What did she do exactly? Are we not supposed to know?

Great trailer! :) It also looks as if they stayed very close to the book. I also really like David Kross in the trailer (the boy Kate's character has the affair with). I've seen him in two German films before and really liked him, so it'll be interesting to see him in an English-speaking role.

I read this book a long, long, long time ago and it was really good. Can't wait to see it translate from book to film.
