MOVIE SYNOPSIS
Adapted from Irish author John Boyne’s critically acclaimed internationally best-selling novel, THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS is an unforgettable story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy, Shmuel, on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences.

THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS is a fictional story that offers a unique perspective on how prejudice, hatred and violence affect innocent people, particularly children, during wartime. The book was first published in 2006 and spent 66 weeks at Number One on the Irish Book Charts. It was also a New York Times bestseller and the winner of 2 Irish Book Awards, Bisto Book of the Year, and the Que Leer Award, among other accolades. The book has been translated into 35 languages and to date has sold 3 million copies worldwide.

From director Mark Herman (LITTLE VOICE, BRASSED OFF) and featuring an impressive cast including David Thewlis (HARRY POTTER), Vera Farmiga (THE DEPARTED), and Rupert Friend (PRIDE AND PREJUDICE), Miramax Films’ THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS is released in Irish cinemas September 12.
