Movie title: Book Thief, The

My rating ***

Drama

Pretty intense drama but beautifully acted.
Geoffrey Rush is always good. A very fine actor.
But it's the young http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4563869/?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm" title="Sophie NĂ©lisse on IMDb">Sophie NĂ©lisse who really wins the show here.
A beautifully portrayed tale of innocence against a brutal backdrop of war and devastation.
For me it was a film to watch alone without the unnecessary interruption of somebody pecking my head about trivial stuff. I enjoyed this film from start to finish.
