I finished reading The Book Thief a while ago and I watched the movie trailer just now and I am here to tell you how I felt about it.
When I was reading the book I imagined the main character, the book thief, much younger than the actress in the movie trailer and not as beautiful of course. So I was thrown off when I watched the trailer. The dad was perfect but the mom…shouldn't she be a bit older. Again, she looked too young for her character.
And I don’t know if I should give my imagination a 10 out of 10 because I totally gave the book thief the same hair style that I saw in the movie trailer. I guess I lived in that era without even knowing about it.
Then Max appeared and I was lost for words. Max's character was the introduction of the climax of this book. He had this strong presence that made you wanted to know everything about him right away. So I am really excited to see what the actor of Max's character has in store for us.
I kept smiling at the tiny scenes they showed in the trailer. Like when she was holding snow in her hands. That part in the book had a huge consequence on somebody. Very special to my heart!
Well he didn’t appear much throughout the trailer but he doesn’t look bad.
The picture and the directing (so far) looked like something out of Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.
In others words, it looked great.
In conclusion, I am super excited for this movie and I cannot wait to watch it
After all, this book is about a girl who finds her voice thanks to reading stolen books.
Watch the trailer for yourself
