I love the book back when I read it, and since then I've been looking forward to seeing the movie. Knowing the way the book is written I wasn't sure how well it would translate to film, but I was more than willing to see them try. And as for the verdict, well I'm not too sure.
I did enjoy the movie and I'm glad I saw it. But if I hadn't read the book I'm not sure I would have really gotten into it. The ending is as heartbreaking and tragic as I was expecting it to be. I held back tears through a good part of the end.
I thought Jim Sturgess was great in the film. But I'm not sure why everyone was so against Anne Hathaway. I'm not sure she was the perfect fit for the role, but I'm not sure who would have done better. Overall I'd saw this was definitely an occasion where the book was better than the movie. But I'm still glad I got to see the movie on the big screen.
This of was a bit of an opposite experience, where I wasn't quite looking forward to seeing it. But surprisingly it really wasn't that bad. There is a bit of a novel story in this one that I was a fan of. And you can't help but feel for Catalaya throughout the movie. Not one that I'd need to see again, but if I had to, I would be willing to sit through it for a second viewing.
