Reviews:

So you’re an adolescent boy who’s asked to read aloud to Kate Winslet after numerous clandestine sex sessions. Excellent! Only the next time you see her, eight years later, it turns out that Kate was a she-wolf of the S.S. Bogus! Such is the dilemma faced by the protagonist of The Reader, and you’ve got to admit—it’s an original one. Stephen Daldry’s indie sleeper (adapted from the book of the same name) was a surprise Oscar underdog.
