Tuesday's Movie

Based off the book of the same name by Cornelia Funke, The Thief Lord is an adventure tale about two orphaned brothers who have run away to Venice, Italy, to escape from their cruel aunt and uncle. There, Prosper and Boniface are taken in by a mysterious boy known as the "Thief Lord" who leads a band of kids living in an abandoned movie theatre. In between dodging the bumbling detective who has been hired by the boys' relatives to find them, the children embark on a fantastic new adventure which involves a wooden wing and a carousel which can make the young old or the old young again.

This movie has fun and adventure, and really cool scenes of the beautiful city of Venice. Bonus: it also has a movie within a movie! (you'll see.)

You may want to read the book before you catch this flick!
