'THE BOOK THIEF'
GEOFFREY RUSH, EMILY WATSON
I've decided to delight you today with spotlights on a few of the very inspiring and touching dramas coming to cinemas this Autumn. The ones that will touch your heart and replenish your soul. Starting with deeply moving THE BOOK THIEF the movie adaptation of Markus Zuzak's novel THE BOOK THIEF which will open up in theatres this November starring Geoffrey Rush! This drama tells the inspirational story of a spirited and courageous young girl who transforms the lives of everyone around her when she is sent to live with a new family in World War II Germany. Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson play her adoptive parents whose lives, together with their whole German town, will change forever when she begins stealing books and sharing them with others!


YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS MR SPIVET BY J.P. JEUNET
THE DIRECTOR OF 'AMELIE'
Another inspiring drama comes from Europe - I've shown you the first trailer before, but here's the second one for THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS MR. SPIVET a charming new movie from the brilliant directer Jean Pierre Jeunet (AMELIE, DELICATESSEN, THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN) in which the story revolves around a 12-year-old cartographer who secretly leaves his family's ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country on board a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute. Adorable little Kyle Catlett leads the cast which also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis, Robert Maillet and Niamh Wilson! The $33 million movie is scheduled to open in European cinemas this Autumn!


MR. PIP POWERFUL DRAMA
 WITH HUGH LAURIE IN LEAD ROLE
And the last of the inspiring and touching trailers today is for another powerful drama MR. PIP starring Hugh Laurie! It is a movie adaptation of a worldwide bestseller from Lloyd Jones and should open up in cinemas this November. As a war rages on in the province of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, a young girl becomes transfixed by the Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, which is being read at school by the only white man in the village. Mr Watts is the only white man left on the island after the blockade. He opens the school and introduces the children the 'Great Expectations.' Matilda, the teenage narrator finds comfort in the story of a Victorian orphan when her own world is falling apart. The Redskins, an army sent to destroy the local rebels are getting closer. Matilda writes 'Pip' in the sand. This simple act leads to terrible consequences when the Redskins suspect Pip to be a rebel leader and demand he be brought before them.

  2. "Mr Pip" looks wonderful. I've always been a fan of both "Great Expectations" and Hugh Laurie. I will definitely go see this movie!

    We went and saw "Lee Daniels' The Butler" yesterday. Some amazing performances, especially Forest Whitaker and Oprah -- love them both!

  3. A tasty feast on the board for us today darling. All of these are going to be brilliant and I'd like to see them all.

    I just watched the entire "Derek" series that Ricky Gervais wrote, directed and starred in. It was one of the most brilliant things I've seen in the last decade. He plays the role of an autistic man with absolute sincerity and sensitivity. The values this series espouse are of the highest order and I think all people should see this. It could change the world.

    1. Really? I thought DEREK was a sitcom of rude humour, since Gervais strikes me as such a person, but now I will check it out, dear! I've seen posters for the new seasons too!

    2. Oh no, this is gorgeous, so beautiful and the message is so very important.

  8. The Book Thief is on my TBR list. I watched The Time Traveler's Wife before reading it, and I liked both movie and book; but I've been disappointed by a lot of book-movies lately. I always like a book better.
