I saw The Reader last week. I don’t have enough Holocaust-themed movie fix, so I lined up another movie in the same era. This time, the protagonist is a young boy.
The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas is a film by Marc Herman, based on the novel by John Boyne. It tells the story of Bruno, an 8 year old boy who befriends a kid of his age in a concentration camp near the house where they live. The friendship became tragic later. A small film with a big heart, and offers valuable lessons.
