3) Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton. Together. In. A. Room. BOOM!
4) Watching Lena Headey and Eva Green hold their own among the men is just too great to ignore.

4 out of 5 stars

WATCH IT BECAUSE…
1) It is a beautiful tale of how one girl changed the lives of the people around her in Germany during WWII.
2) The beautiful friendship between Liesel and Max as well as Liesel and Rudy.
3) It managed to make me tear a little towards the end and that’s a rare feat considering I’m quite desensitized to feelings these days.
