Here’s the official international trailer for The Book Thief, the Fox 2000 film that’s stealthily entering awards season. When it bowed at Mill Valley, my colleague Pete Hammond wrote it played to a “huge standing ovation.” The movie is based on Markus Zusak’s No. 1 best-selling novel and follows a young girl in Nazi Germany who seeks refuge in books while her family hides a young Jewish man in the basement of their modest home. Brian Percival directed stars Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Sophie Nélisse and Ben Schnetzer. The Book Thief is released domestically on November 8th.
