    This is the movie based on the book by the same title by Markus Zusak. The screenplay follows the book with some omissions and changes which do not detract from the overall feel, and the experience of the ordinary people during the war is well conveyed. The acting is quite superb: Geoffrey Rush gives an Oscar-winning performance as Hans, Sophie Nelisse captures hearts as Liesel, Emily Watson does a very creditable cranky Rosa and Roger Allams narration as Death is marvellous. Well worth seeing.
