Directed by award winning director, Brian Percival (About a Girl, Much Ado About Nothing, North and South, Downton Abbey), The Book Thief is based on the beloved international bestselling novel, written by Markus Zusak and tells the story of Liesel (Sophie Nélisse), an extraordinary and courageous young girl sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany.  She learns to read with encouragement from her new family (Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson) and Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jewish refugee who they are hiding under the stairs.  For Liesel and Max, the power of words and imagination become the only escape from the tumultuous events happening around them.  The Book Thief is a life-affirming story of survival and of the resilience of the human spirit.
