Based on the beloved international bestselling novel, The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, an extraordinary and courageous young girl sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany.

Liesel discovers that her new foster parents (Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson) are harboring Max, a Jewish refugee who they are hiding under the stairs. With his encouragement, Liesel learns to read, and they discover that the power of words and imagination are the only escape from the tumultuous events happening around them. Narrated with caustic musing by Death himself - who notes that Nazi Germany was one of his busiest times - The Book Thief is a journey of discovery, courage, friendship, and the power to triumph over the most daunting obstacles.
