Now playing in theaters is director Brian Percival’s (Downton Abbey) fantastic adaptation of Markus Zusak's novel The Book Thief.  The story is about a young girl (Sophie Nélisse) who is sent to live with foster parents (Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson) in Nazi Germany after losing her family, and uses her love of reading as a way to rebel against the rise of Nazism.  It's an extremely well done movie and something you should make an effort to see.  For more on the film, watch the trailer. At the Los Angeles press day, I spoke to author Markus Zusak and director Brian Percival.  They talked about how they first met, the positive critical reaction, story changes while writing the book, deleted scenes in the film, whether they ever fought over anything, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
