The Reader (Blu-ray)

Kate Winslet won an Oscar and a BAFTA for her complex and gripping portrayal of a post-war German woman who discovers a sick teenage boy in the street and takes him in. They embark on a torrid and temperamental affair, so when the young Michael finds her mysteriously gone one day he is emotionally devastated. Years later their paths cross again, only now Michael is a law student and Hanna is on trial - for Nazi war crimes.
