The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is based on the novel by John Boyne, one of the major best-sellers in recent years. More than three million copies have already been sold and the book has been translated into 30 languages. Set during World War II, it is a story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences. A brave and haunting family film that will lift the brutality of the Holocaust out of the history books.
