JustJared has posted on set photos of Great Kate with director Stephen Daldry. Ryan brought up The Reader in the comments section and suggests it as our first Awards Daily Book Club selection. I’m inclined to agree! Hurry on over to Amazon and get your copy of The Reader.
The site described The Reader thusly:
The Reader is based on the best-selling post-WWII novel by German author Bernhard Schlink, in which a young man obsessed with an older woman is forced to face the awful truth at a war crimes trial. Kate, 32, and Ralph Fiennes, 45, star in the lead roles.
In the spirit of Sasha‚Äôs ‚ÄúOscar Bait ‚Äò08‚Ä≥ entry yesterday, I‚Äôll do what the Envelope did for other upcoming contenders but neglected to do for The Reader.
