Mosaic Film “The Reader”

Tuesday, November 19

Teenager Michael Berg becomes ill and is helped home by Hanna (Kate Winslet – Oscar Best Actress), a stranger twice his age. Michael recovers from scarlet fever and looks for Hanna to thank her. The two are drawn into a passionate affair. Michael discovers that Hanna loves being read to and relationship deepens. Hanna is enthralled as Michael reads her many classics.  Despite their intense bond, Hanna suddenly disappears one day and Michael is left confused and heartbroken. Eight years later, while the now older Michael (Ralph Fiennes) is a law student observing the Nazi war crime trials, he is stunned to find Hanna back in his life – this time as a defendant in the courtroom. As Hanna’s past is revealed, Michael uncovers a deep secret that will impact both of their lives. Oscar Winner and nominee, THE READER is a story about truth and reconciliation, about how one generation comes to terms with the crimes of another.
