The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
2008
 
When his family moves from their home in Berlin to a strange new house in Poland, young Bruno (Asa Butterfield) befriends Shmuel (Jack Scanlon), a boy who lives on the other side of the fence, where everyone seems to be wearing striped pajamas. Unaware of Shmuel's fate as a Jewish prisoner or the role his own Nazi father plays in his imprisonment, Bruno embarks on a dangerous journey inside the camp's walls.

Not the the expected holocaust film focused on an uplifting story in the midst of horror. Overall, the premise and ending are unrealistic, but the film is disturbingly compelling and, in the end, gets its message across without any sugar coating.
