The Reader

(2009)

Starring: Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, Brunno Ganz

I could take this movie or leave it. The synopsis sounded more enticing than the movie itself. Although I don’t recall reading anything about war crimes. Then again, I may have and just didn’t pay any attention.

If you are into post-WWIII German dramas then this movie should be right up your alley.

Kate Winslet did and excellent job, she was the perfect actress for the role. I am unsure why Ralph Fiennes got second billing as he didn’t show up much until near the end of the movie. Perhaps it’s a Hollywood thing.

I am glad Kate won an Oscar for Best Performance by an in a Leading Role for this movie.
