(No spoilers in OP) I saw this last week and thought it was pretty good - I’m surprised there isn’t a thread about it already.
Let me start by saying I have not read the book, so I have no idea how it compares or how faithful it is. I liked the movie, but I left the theater with no desire to ever see it again or to read the book. I found it very emotionally draining and sometimes difficult to watch. I would have a hard time recommending this movie because there is a considerable amount violence.
I am actually really pissed about the movie’s rating. It is only PG-13, and I feel like it is a “hard” R. I walked into the movie thinking not that much “bad stuff” would be in it because of the rating, and I was sorely disillusioned. If it had had an R rating, I think I would have been more prepared for the violence and not caught so off-guard.
