Academy Award and BAFTA winner Kate Winslet delivers a dynamic performance in this tale of eroticism, secrecy and guilt 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 "an exemplary piece of filmmaking" (Philip French, The Observer) about the difficult distance between truth and reconciliation.
