Michael Berg and Kate Winslet

Movie is based in Post WWII Germany about a boy (15 ish) who has an affair with a lady named Hanna. Their relationship is based upon the kid reading to older lady and this lasted for a summer. One day the two separates.
Fast forward to a court trial regarding some Nazi war and the boys sees the old lady again and he holds some interesting information.

Sorry to be so freaking brief but i dont' want to ruin the movie for anyone. I do want to say a few things. I rarely read about a movie's summary before I watch it because I dont' want it to ruin it for me. I also do enjoy watching great films with nominations and awards, this was one of them. What i did NOT know was the fact there were so much nudity in this film. It was definitely a great film, but i didn't expect it to see anyone naked at all, but it happened with a minor vs an older lady back in the 1955s so it was totally akward. Please make sure you are aware of this before you watch this.

Kate did a good job in the film. I do not know why she was nominated at best supportive attress cause clearly she was the lead in the movie.

Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.

I read the book in my German Literature class, the story is very good. Not sure about the movie, I'll go see it when I have time... I'm a little hesitant as movies from books aren't always the best. A good example was "Perfume: a story of murder" the book was a lot better than the movie.
