A young girl’s passion for books helps her and the people she loves find a respite from the horrors of Nazi Germany in this moving drama that looks at the regime from a child’s viewpoint. Originally illiterate when she was sent to live with foster parents Hans and Rosa Hubermann in the late 1930s, spirited nine-year-old Liesel quickly learns to read thanks to the kindly couple’s encouragement. Soon she’s obsessed with the written word and the escapism it can provide; a situation that intensifies after the Hubermanns take in a Jewish refugee and Liesel starts sharing stories with the increasingly imperilled man. Narrated by Death himself yet surprisingly life-affirming, the film is based on a best-selling young adults’ novel.
