War times also had their moments of humanity and significance, this is the essence of the movie "The Book Thief". Adapted from the book of the same title, "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak, was made by the team that also made "Life of Pi". With the story set in the critical war years and the setting is a town in Nazi Germany makes it into a pile of conflicts, struggles, and fear but holds a place of hope and dreams.

Sophie Nélisse plays Liesel, a girl sent to live with her foster parents in a German town is longing for her family and is adjusting to her new family which is never the ideal parents.  Her curiosity led her interest in learning and reading books.
