This Oscar-nominated war drama, released in 2014, is based on a novel written by Markus Zusak. Liesel is a young girl surrounded by the horrors of World War II Germany. While living with foster parents, Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others, including a Jewish refugee who is being protected by her foster family. This film is rated PG-13.
