The Reader Review

I have no idea what my expectations would be for this movie. I knew that Kate Winslet was getting major kudos for her role and winning lots of awards and is seemingly a lock for the Oscar tomorrow night. Other than that, I wasn’t clear how the love story and the holocaust came together.  But I am a Kate Winslet fan and wanted to see it before the Oscars.

It was an incredible story, quiet and powerful.  I am still trying to figure out why Michael turned around and left the prison.  And I can’t believe Hanna was too ashamed to admit her illiteracy as opposed to be seeing as a murderer.  In terms of what we choose and why, I will forever by astounded.  Sometimes, the choices we make are unbelievable, unreal, and against everything someone else would do.  It is what continues to amaze me about people and continues my search for answers.
