Let me start by saying : I love books and I love movies. (Oh, and maybe I should mention I am a sap for anything sweet and emotional!)  Okay, now that we have that cleared up... I am so excited to see the movie, The Book Thief.  To be honest, I would love to read the book as well... but, that probably won't be happening  anytime soon.  So - I have to make time to see the movie (I keep putting it off in hopes of reading the book first!)  
I did want to let you know it was available on DVD and Blu-Ray now - so you can check it out!!!!
Let me know what you think!!
Also - I have added discussion questions at the end of this post, I loved reading them when I was in my book club, so I am sure you will too!  Talk about thoughts to ponder!   

Synopsis:  THE BOOK THIEF
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).
