The Book Thief Trailer. Brian Percival‘s The Book Thief (2013) movie trailer stars Sophie Nelisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Ben Schnetzer, and Joachim Paul Assbock. The Book Thief‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Markus Zusak, “It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.”

On the trailer:
Markus Zusak‘s novel has attracted a lot of praise, as the trailer is happy to point out, and the premise is an intriguing one. It’s too bad, then, that the first trailer buries this potentially fascinating story under a thick layer of treacle and some heavy-handed narration. The dialogue also seems terribly on the nose. Lines like “I never understood the meaning of hope” seem like the very epitome of telling when one should be showing.
The Book Thief also stars Kirsten Block and Sandra Nedeleff.
