The Book Thief: Movie Review

IN THE December 2 ISSUE

FROM THE 2013 Articles,

Even though The Book Thief takes place in Nazi Germany, this isn’t really a war film. There are Allied bombing raids, and characters die, but there isn’t a lot of action for Spandex-superhero fans. It’s an intimate movie about people who are heroes in small ways, based on Markus Zusak’s popular YA book.
