Latest Trailer For The Book Thief
Life during wartime

23 October 2013  |  Written by James White

With one trailer already out in the world for the US, it seems only fair that the UK should get its own promo for The Book Thief, based on Markus Zusak’s acclaimed novel. Take a look… 

Set in Third Reich Germany, the film version finds Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson as the foster parents of orphan Liesel Meminger (Sophie Nélisse).

Living with her new family, the Hubermanns, Liesel befriends Jewish fighter Max (Ben Schnetzer), who's being hidden in the Hubermans' cellar; the mayor's wife Ilsa, who gives Liesel the run of her library; and various local children, including Rudy (Nico Liersch). The story traces Liesel's personal development, both through her relationships and through the books she steals and reads, all against the backdrop of the Nazi state. She eventually writes the story of her own life, as the situation becomes ever more dangerous.

The Book Thief has an eye on Oscar season with a November 15 release in the US and a set date of January 31 for our cinemas.
