This movie is excellent for those who read the book first and would like to "see" a condensed version of the book. The actors are amazing. Some of the book order and location is changed a bit, but for those who know the story... it's amazing. Do not rely on movie critic reviews because they OBVIOUSLY do not know the story. Pay attention to the sounds and lighting as they are key to the story line.
