Adapted from John Boyne's best-selling novel, the movie "The Boy In The Striped Pajamas" is a story seen through the eyes of an eight year old boy largely shielded from the reality of World War II. This unforgettable tale follows a forbidden friendship that forms between Bruno, the son of a Nazi commandant, and Shmuel, a Jewish boy held captive in a concentration camp. Though the two are separated physically by a barbed-wire fence, their friendship grows and their lives become inescapably intertwined. "The Boy In The Striped Pajamas" features an impressive cast including David Thewlis (Harry Potter, Naked), Vera Farmiga (The Departed, Breaking andEntering) and Rupert Friend (The Libertine, Pride and Prejudice), and introduces Asa Butterfield as Bruno and Jack Scalon as Shmuel. The film is produced by David Heyman (Harry Potter) and adapted for the screen and directed by Mark Herman (Little Voice, Brassed Off). After watching , you can't help but compare it to the animated Disney classic "The Fox And The Hound" - and cry, and cry, and cry.
