The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Based on a novel by John Boyne, (who interestingly enough wrote the first draft in two and a half days with very little sleep) The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas was a really interesting perspective from an eight year old's pov growing up in Berlin (world war 2).
Bruno and his family move to the country after his soldier father gets promoted to a high ranking officer. It is in his new home, where he is all but a prisoner) that he sees the 'farm' from his bedroom window. Little does he realize what he sees is a concentration camp, even after he sneaks out and befriends a jewish boy his own age through the wire fence.
I won't give away anymore of the story, and though the ending wasn't a HEA, I highly recommend the movie =)
