The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

I just watched a really sad movie.  It is called The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.

Here is the summary off of imdb.com

Young Bruno lives a wealthy lifestyle in Pre-war Germany along with his mother, elder sister, and army Commandant father. The family re-locate to the countryside where his father is assigned to commandeer a prison camp. A few days later, Bruno befriends another youth, strangely dressed in striped pyjamas, named Shmuel who lives behind an electrified fence. Bruno will soon find out that he is not permitted to befriend his new friend as he is a Jew, and that the neighboring yard is actually a prison camp for Jews awaiting extermination

It was rather sad. But at the same time, I loved that it was real-life-ish. (like we discussed). on another note, you should watch Last Chance Harvey. I think you would really enjoy it.
