This movie was OK but I don't think it stood up to all the hype. I'm glad I saw it but I wouldn't rush to recommend it to anyone. I must admit it deals with a very sensitive subject. Very sad. I was going to read the book to see if was better than the movie and it turns out the book was based on the movie; that doesn't happen too often.
