Opening this weekend at the Orpheum Theatre in Fairfield is The Book Thief. "Based on the beloved international bestselling book, The Book Thief tells the story of an The Book Thief posterextraordinary, spirited young girl sent to live with a foster family in WWII Germany. Intrigued by the only book she brought with her, she begins collecting books as she finds them. With the help of her new parents and a secret guest under the stairs, she learns to read and creates a magical world that inspires them all." "The Book Thief is a real throwback to classic Hollywood filmmaking for the entire family. It becomes more powerful for its handling of a difficult subject in an innovative way."- Mark Hobin

We'll talk about the new releases, two of the award-worthy films we saw, American Hustle; Saving Mr. Banks and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 PM, again Sunday mornings, 11:30. P.L. Travers: I know what (Disney's) going to do to (Mary Poppins), she'll be converting and twinkling. - Saving Mr. Banks
