As Germany is plunged into the horrors of WWII, a young girl, Liesel, finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. Meanwhile, her adoptive parents are sheltering a Jewish refuge under their stairs. This movie is like the film the butler and what I mean about that is the movie forces all the sad and strong drama in your face just like the butler. the score by John Williams is sweet and moving like other classic movies.

'The Book Thief' is a period drama that suffers from the same problems I had with the similar film 'War Horse'. I found both to be identical in their by-the-numbers storytelling. There lacked a certain amount of dramatical inclination. I felt little engagement throughout. It's a real shame because the actors, cinematography, and overall production are terrific. The one thing I could've done without completely was the narration. It's unnecessary for the fact that it's words clash with the film entirely and create a weird tonal imbalance after scenes that attempt to convey emotion.
