Trailer - The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

John Boyne's novel, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, has been made into a film. While the movie doesn't exactly follow the book in all respects, such as the age of Bruno and Schmuel, much of it tracks the text.

The film, which is rated PG-13, has several tag lines:

  • A story of innocence in a world of ignorance
  • A timeless story of innocence lost and humanity found.
  • Fences divide, but hope unites.
  • Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us...

Among its other attributes, the film conveys how a commander's decisions to harm camp prisoners feels when those decisions are unexpectedly—and personally—felt by the commander himself.
