Striped Pajamas

If you haven't seen The Boy in the Striped Pajamas yet. Get out there and rent it. Also buy a few boxes of kleenex. This movie is incredibly well made and heart warming.

It's set in WWII. The main character, an eight year old boy named Bruno, is the son of a Naxi Commandant. He notices from his window a "farm" where all the workers wear striped pajamas. The same pajamas. He meets a boy from the "farm" and they form a touching friendship. It gives the German people's point of view. Some were in favor with the camps, others weren't. It's also a lovely story from a child's perspective.

It is produced by the same producers of Life is Beautiful. It is just as beautiful, and just as sad.

Go see it. Now.
