As far as I'm concerned, this film was incredible. Complex, intriguing, quite possibly the most heart-wrenching performance by Kate Winslet since "Revolutionary Road," "The Reader" is one truly brilliant film. Stephen Daldry took a book that was written rather sloppily and simplistically and transformed it into a [let's be honest] visually boring yet characteristically fascinating study of morals, affection, and judgement.
Taking a Nazi prison guard that allowed hundreds of women to burn alive in a church and making her a type of martyr and hero is not an easy task to undertake. Kate Winslet looks like my Mom, too, which made her acting all the more personal and affective. A great film that everyone will enjoy, should they be okay with a dragging second act and a constitution for terribly depressing endings.
