    I've never read the book, but the movie was very good. Well acted and moving. I would suggest not to watch it more than once or twice. 8/10 or 81/100.

    A thoroughly engaging, terrifically moving family story that's rich in beautifully observed and lovingly conveyed human detail.
  2. It is hard to imagine a better cast or production values so the film should find audiences among sophisticated urban adults.

    A richly compelling story of family and self-discovery.
