The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas may be a family drama, but do bear in mind that the film has a shock ending that is truly horrific. Being a film about the Holocaust, that’s probably not a surprise. However, as I’ve mentioned in a previous post about this movie, for me the power of the horror came from recognising what it had actually taken to shock me.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is showing on Sky Movies Premiere today at 10pm (yes, 10pm! Your listings magazine might say an earlier time but Sky have made a last minute change).

It’s also showing at 3.45pm tomorrow, and at varying times throughout next week.
