We saw the movie ” Book Thief” yesterday evening. I am usually disappointed in seeing a movie after I have read the book. However this production stuck pretty close to the original manuscript with some minor changes and omissions. Sophie Nelise a 13 year old French Canadian girl who also starred in ”Monsieur Lazhar” did a stellar performance portraying an adolescent girl in war torn Germany during World War Two. This movie illustrated the futility of war and showed suffering, death and destruction on both sides.
