Sophie Nélisse: 'The Book Thief' Washington Screening

Sophie Nelisse talks with former President George H.W. Bush during a screening for The Book Thief earlier this week in Houston, Texas.

The 14-year-old actress met and chatted with the former president and former First Lady Barbara Bush along with her co-star Geoffrey Rush.

On Thursday night (November 7), Sophie attended another screening for the movie in Washington D.C. at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Out in theaters NOW, The Book Thief follows Liesel Meminger (Nélisse) is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.

With the help of her accordion-playing foster father (Rush), she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

FYI: Sophie is wearing a Alexa von Canisius dress in Houston.
