JJJ is so excited that The Book Thief is coming out on DVD and Bluray!

Based on the book of the same name by Markus Zusak, Liesel Meminger (Sophie 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 (Geoffrey 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.

We’ve even got an exclusive clip from the disc, all about the Liesel’s fashion in the film.

“We don’t learn about the Holocaust in my school,” Sophie recently shared. “So when I did the movie I had to do a lot of research.”

She added, “Kids my age — our generation — don’t know enough about what happened [during World War II]. Some people think it’s annoying that we keep on making these [Holocaust] movies, but I don’t think so because all of the [concentration] camp survivors are gonna die at some point — they’re not gonna be alive soon — and I just hope that in 100 years people remember what happened, first of all to not let it happen again and sort of for a way to remember the people that died and to remember the people that fought for them. So I just think it’s really important that we keep on making these movies.”
