Py­ja­mas, The Boy in the Striped BBC2, Fri­day 9pm

Bray People - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ir­ish writer John Boyne achieved in­terna tional suc­cess in 2006 with his con­tro­ver­sial novel, ‘The Boy in the Striped Py­ja­mas’ and his steady adap­ta­tion from Mark Her­nan more or less does jus­tic to the book. Bruno is an eight-year-old boy who moves from his par­ents. Bruno misses Berlin at first, un­til he be­friends a boy his own age called Shmuel who lives be­hind a fence in what Bruno be­lieves is a neigh­bour­ing's ac­tu­ally a con­cen­tra­tion camp which Bruno's dad has been sent to run and only grad­u­ally does he re­alise what’s re­ally go­ing on.
