Saw the movie this weekend. Enjoyed it. Very sad and emotional. Most of the theater was crying or sniffling throughout much of the movie, including the group of three twenty-something guys in front of us. And including me.
Despite the terrible reviews the movie is getting, I thought it was rather good.
But, seriously, Read the Book First (RtBF). The book is incredible. The movie is good because it is based on an incredible book, and you will enjoy the movie more if you’ve already enjoyed the book.
So, please, read the book first.
