Official Poster Unveiled for Stephen Daldry's The Reader
How far would you go to protect a secret? As reluctant as I am to continue writing about The Reader, this new poster looks pretty good, so I thought I'd give it the benefit of the doubt today and feature it. As I hope everyone knows by now (via the trailer), The Reader stars Kate Winslet, David Kross, and Ralph Fiennes is about an affair that a young law student has with an older woman. Years later he encounters her again, but this time she's on trial for war crimes. The only reason I might end up seeing this is because David Kross looks like he steals the show - not for Kate Winslet. But I still don't think it'll be that great of a film.
Thanks to Cinematical for debuting this poster. You can click the image below for a bigger version.
The Reader is directed by English filmmaker Stephen Daldry, of Eight, Billy Elliot, and The Hours previously. The screenplay was written by fellow Englishman David Hare, of Damage and The Hours, and is based on Bernhard Schlink's novel of the same name. The Weinstein Company is debuting The Reader in limited theaters starting on December 10th in the thick of the Oscar season.
