I’m sure a lot of parents are looking forward to watching The Book Thief next month. The movie will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on March 11, 2014. But if you and your kids can’t wait to see the film, you can watch it in Digital HD right now. And thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, a reader of my dad blog will win The Book Thief Blu-ray. Isn’t that awesome?
As some moms and dads know, The Book Thief is based on a novel by the same name. I have not read the book, but I think my daughter has that book. BTW, if you’re read the book, be sure to check out The Book Thief discussion guide below. Consider it your homework. You’re welcome.
The Book Thief Synopsis
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 Nélisse) 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).
