A stirring piece of Holocaust fiction from the Random House Children’s Group has now been adapted to film. The book is a tale of friendship, beginning when young Bruno is shipped off to a boring faraway town when his military father receives a promotion. In the back of his new home, there is a fence stretching as far as one can see, cutting him off from the strange people he can see beyond it.

However, one day, while exploring, he happens upon a boy of the same age with circumstances very different from his own. Their friendship blooms brightly, but it may have revealing and devastating consequences. Check out the preview below, or visit our movie-tie-ins page for more information and more RH books being adapted to film.
