Academy Award winner Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road) delivers a dynamic performance in this “tale of eroticism, secrecy and guilt” (Claudia Puig, USA Today) set in turbulent post-Nazi Germany. Bringing to life the celebrated international novel, Winslet is riveting as Hanna Schmitz – a lonely, working-class woman who experiences a brief but intense affair with a teenage boy. Years later they meet again: Hanna now a defendant in a notorious case and her ex-lover, now a law student, holding the secret to her salvation. Directed by three-time Academy Award nominee Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) and featuring Ralph Fiennes (The Duchess) as the grown man still reeling from Hanna’s influence, The Reader is a “moving, romantic and poignant story” (Roger Friendman, Fox News) about the difficult distance between truth and reconciliation.
