THE BOOK THIEF
Available Now on Blu-ray and DVD
Lose yourself in The Book Thief, an adaptation of the beloved bestselling novel, which tells the inspiring story of a spirited and courageous young girl who transforms the lives of everyone around her as it is released on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
When orphan child Liesel (Sophie Nelisse; Monsieur Lazhar) arrives at her new home illiterate during World War 2, her foster father Hans (Geoffrey Rush; The Kings Speech, Shakespeare in Love) begins teaching her to read.
Political tensions heighten across Germany, and the World and the power of words and imagination become a means of escape – and even joy – from the tumultuous events enveloping Liesel and everyone she knows and loves, including her new parents Hans (Rush) and Rosa (Emily Watson; War Horse, Red Dragon).
When she witnesses German soldiers’ mass burning of books her passion for the importance of the written word becomes all the more poignant.
The Book Thief is a moving portrait of the resiliency of the human spirit; this life-affirming tale contrasts innocence (as embodied by Liesel) with the pervasive tyranny that marked the times and her homeland.
The Book Thief is out now on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
