The Reader is one of 20 books chosen to celebrate World Book Night on 23 April, 2013
http://www.worldbooknight.org/books/2013 so we thought we would screen the film adaptation of the book, directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliott, The Hours) and starring Kate Winslet, David Kross and Ralph Fiennes. The fIlm is a senstive and moving adaptation of Bernard Schlink’s bestselling German novel of 1995 but if you haven’t read the book you can still enjoy the film.
Synopsis: Set in post World War Two Germany, nearly a decade after his affair with an older woman came to a mysterious end, law student Michael Berg re-encounters his former lover as she defends herself in a war-crime trial.
