Five new clips and images from “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” with David Thewlis

David Thewlis, who plays Remus Lupin, has a new movie project actually coming out today titled “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas”, set during World War II, 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. Thewlis plays the part of the dad. I’ve gotten quite a few clips and images from Disney:

And then here are some pics! First, Asa Butterfield as Bruno, Zac Mattoon O’Brien as Leon, Domonkos Németh as Martin, and Henry Kingsmill as Karl.

Next, Vera Farmiga as Mother:

And here’s a great shot of David Thewlis:

I’ve got a copy of this movie and I can’t wait to see it – anyone out there that’s seen it already and want to tell us how it is? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    Saw the film a few months ago in the cinema. As a film objectively I think there is a big flaw to it, which is that the story basically is complete nonsense, as this could NEVER have happened and it kind of shows in the film too. You are watching this and you think: “We have seen the pictures and films about concentration camps, this is NOT a concentration camp! -Because if it was the story would have been impossible to happen that way. I think they could have pulled the story off though if they went a little more “traumatic fairytale” in style rather than being quite so realistic.

    Having said that, it did not stop me from enjoying the film that much. I actually enjoyed it a lot and I have never seen people react so strongly after a film, not even after Schindler’s List. -People were holding on to each other, staggering crying out of the cinema!

    And most importantly David was fantastic!
