The movie, THE BOOK THIEF, is based on the book of the same name. In the book, Death narrates the events, stating that he seldom cares about the stories of the living. Death explains that the story begins in 1938, with young Liesel Meminger traveling by train with her mother and sick little brother. She steals the book The Gravedigger’s Handbook, but before she reaches her small town, her brother dies.
One of the similarities between the book and movie is the portrayal of the main character, Hans. The character is portrayed by Geoffrey Rush as a loving, caring, and brave father. Rush perfectly personifies Hans’ dual nature, as well as the character’s strong and tender side. Similarly, Emily Watson plays Rosa, a strict, yet loving mother. The two work hand in hand to set up the story.

The book tells the story of Liesel, a young German girl who is shipped away to live with foster parents before World War II.
