This move was pretty much panned by the critics, but I loved the story so much that I just had to watch it. I think they got a number of things right, but the movie did not have the depth of the book. I also thought the husband half of the equation was played pretty well but the wife character seemed different than I remembered. Also, the ending was not the same (the crux was the same, but it was played out in a different manner that, frankly, did not add anything to the story).
My rating: 3/5
