A wrenching and deeply moving holocaust story, based on the novel by John Boyne, about two boys living on opposite sides of a concentration camp fence. Bruno is the son of a high-ranking Nazi (David Thewlis), who is confused that he's not allowed to wander near the neighbouring 'farm'. Curiosity gets the better of him and behind a tall barbed wire fence he meets Shmuel, a boy his age, whom he secretly befriends. Soon it becomes clear to Bruno that the soldiers treat the people here very badly, and when he learns Shmuel is in trouble the two boys hatch an outrageous plan that culminates in the film's devastating climax. All the acting is superb with Vera Farmiga giving an award-winning performance as Bruno's mother.
