I think that 'The Reader has ruined holocaust movies.
I was actually intrigued by the whole small town boy in the big city writer thing. I really like Meryl Streep and the relationship with Kevin Kline. The accent didn't bother me at all, in fact it was kind of charming.
When it got to the holocaust stuff however, I just felt kind of cynical towards it. The choice scene was high drama though.
A pretty disapointing AFI 100 movie.
