The Book Thief  is one of the most moving movies I have ever seen, one of those rare ones you treasure forever especially because it is about the power of words to make worlds.
Dealing with the horrors of World War II as well as the magic and healing powers of books, it is the chilling yet heart-warming tale of  a young girl living with her adoptive family in Nazi Germany. Taught to read by her benevolent foster father, the girl begins "borrowing" books and sharing them with the Jewish refugee being sheltered by her adoptive parents in their home. 
Here  and here you can read some good reviews of this beautiful movie.

Here you can read this unforgettable novel online.
