Good movie with Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, and Sophie Nelisse set in Workd War II Germany. Sophie play Liesel - a young girl adopted by a Geoffrey and Emily who play an elderly German couple. Liesel cannot read and is quickly taunted by schoolmates for being dumb.
However, after her adopted parent's take in Max - a Jew hiding from the Nazis, Liesel befriends him, and they soon form a lasting friendship. Learning of her illiteracy, Max teaches her to read and write which will eventually play a key role in Liesel's adult life.
Good movie, starts slow but does pick up - especially like Liesel and her schoolmate/friend Rudy and their interaction with each other as kids! Do see this one when you get the chance!
