The Book Thief Q&A

Cineplex Movie Blog – Talking with Sophie Nélisse, Geoffrey Rush, Brian Percival

You can easily forget that Quebec’s Sophie Nélisse is just a kid when watching her so expertly play Liesel Meminger in the WWII drama The Book Thief.

With pain, confusion and grief clouding her doll-pretty face as she’s confronted by the death of her younger brother and the departure of her Communist mother, thrust into a new family comprised of adoptive mother Rosa (Emily Watson) and father Hans (Geoffrey Rush), Liesel lives a life well beyond her, and Nélisse’s, young years, with only stolen, or borrowed, books letting her temporarily escape her harsh reality.
