John Williams, who scored “Jaws” and will score “Star Wars: Episode VII” is the composer for ”The Book Thief.” The SoundCloud trailer gives people the first listen of his music.
Based on the beloved bestselling novel by Markus Zusak, “The Book Thief” tells the inspiring story of a spirited and courageous young girl named Liesel, who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a foster family in World War II Germany.
For Liesel, the power of words and of imagination becomes a means of escape – and even joy – from the tumultuous events enveloping her and everyone she knows and loves. She is “The Book Thief’s” heart and soul.
Indeed, it is heart and soul – as well as triumph and perseverance—that drive the film, which is rich in themes and characters that will resonate for every generation. A moving and poignant portrait of the resiliency of the human spirit, this life-affirming tale contrasts innocence (as embodied by Liesel) with the pervasive tyranny that marked the times and her homeland.
“The Book Thief”stars Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Ben Schnetzer, Nico Liersch and Sophie Nelisse in the title role. It will open in cinemas February 2014.
