Movie: The Reader

I saw the preview for this movie on Apple Movie Trailers and immediately came up with this idea. I have to say I was a little sick to my stomach and nervous creating the swastika in Illustrator for the image. Even though I understand this symbol predates Nazi Germany by thousands of years I still felt like I was somehow giving credence to those deadly beliefs, crazy I know. After hiding the file in a folder, within a folder, within a folder, using brighter and more interesting colors, I tried my best to redirect the viewers attention to the figures in the foreground. And from what I can glean from the preview these figures are the focus of the film. The movie stars Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes and is based on a best selling novel, it looks depressing but good. Enjoy the picture for what its worth.
