I really enjoyed this movie, however, havent read the book so I had nothing to compare it to. All the actors played great roles.

I enjoyed this movie, however I felt a little let down as I had read the book before.

It was a great choice in cast with Abigail Breslin and Joan Cusack were fantastic!

Few tears for sure.

Quite a good movie. I think it was a good teaching tool for those of us who have watched it. It is most helpful to confront such a situation before we get involved emotionally ourselves.

A thought provoking movie, and great acting. Hadn't read the book. Found the switching back and forth to different times a little distracting, but enjoyed the movie nevertheless.
