Gone Baby Gone
Yes, I made it to the theaters to see this one, and I'm so glad I did. If you haven't read the book, you're in for a surprise with this. But if you have (especially if you loved it like me) you'll probably go into it a little apprehensive to see how they're able to pull it off. With that said I was pleasantly surprised at how well it translated to screen, and honestly don't think it could have been any better.
Going into this there was a lot of talk about the ending, but in some ways I think it works a little better than the book. I wouldn't say there's more closure with the movie, instead that the ending was far more fleshed out so you had a much better idea of what was happening.
Normally I'm all for reading the book before the movie, and in general I think that's still the case here. But if you don't have time, I think you could definitely see the movie first and you'd still get exactly what all the fuss is about.
