"The Reader" opens in post-WWII Germany when teenager Michael Berg becomes ill and is helped home by Hanna, a stranger twice his age. Michael recovers from scarlet fever and seeks out Hanna to thank her. The two are quickly drawn into a passionate but secretive affair. Michael discovers that Hanna loves being read to and their physical relationship deepens. Hanna is enthralled as Michael reads to her from "The Odyssey," "Huck Finn" and "The Lady with the Little Dog." Despite their intense bond, Hanna mysteriously disappears one day and Michael is left confused and heartbroken. Eight years later, while Michael is a law student observing the Nazi war crime trials, he is stunned to find Hanna back in his life - this time as a defendant in the courtroom. As Hanna's past is revealed, Michael uncovers a deep secret that will impact both of their lives. "The Reader" is a story about truth and reconciliation, about how one generation comes to terms with the crimes of another.

This movie REALLY took me by surprise. I have never read the book, only knew that Kate Winslet won Best Actress for this role so I rented it and was blown away by the engaging story and her performance! You will end up having mixed emotions about how you feel about Hanna Schmitz (Kate Winslet) by the end so much that you ask yourself "What would I have done if I were Michael Berg"? After renting I bought it from Wal Mart and have watched it again. This movie is part of my timeless classic collection now! Highly recommend this Blu Ray purchase!

This is an excellent film and not the story line I expected at all from the title. Very griping and keeps you involved completely for the entire show. This is NOT a chick flick, the story line takes a lot of turns. My husband was just as enthralled in watching it as I was. A must see!
