I should preface this review by stating I didn’t exactly grow up on Disney films, so I don’t get the nostalgia that many people get with films, although Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite films.

When they turn one of your favorite novels into a movie, it’s always a tricky situation. You want so desperately for it to as great as the novel, but then you’re also worried because you know it could never live up to the novel. The Book Thief is one of my all-time favorite novels (definitely in my top five), and the novel made a huge impact on me. It was a powerful read that brought tears to my eyes. The characters were so lively and developed and Liesel was a fabulous main character. Watching her grow up and change was a guttural experience, because this is a tough world she was growing up in. By nine-years-old she has lost so much and her whole world is changing before her very own eyes. The novel is told from the point of view of Death, and I thought to myself how could this ever work as a film. The novel is told in an unusual way…but did the movie get it right...[more]...
