The Book Thief leads (Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush, Sophie Nélisse, and Ben Schnetzer) had the challenge of bringing beloved characters from the film’s best-selling source material to the big screen, and according to the first trailer, they’ve done a masterful job. Nélisse plays the main character, Liesel Meminger, a young girl with an unquenchable thirst for the written word.

The film, based on the New York Times bestseller by Markus Zusak, is set in Nazi Germany and shows the rise of Hitler and his followers. Check out the trailer below:

After this sweet and beautiful, we have to ask: Is it November 15 yet?
