    Fantastic book! It's was funny,sad, and a really good book! I like the plot of the book a lot and how the ending is shown! There is really good figurative language and it uses the 5 seances. The imagery is also good!

  1. Carefully walks the fine line between paying homage to a classic and entertaining a modern audience.
  2. Depends on the magical for the inner workings of its story, and that might not suit viewers desirous of more concrete explanations. But, again, the movie seems just right for the viewers it aims to please.

    Unfortunately, Russell paces the film as if trying to demonstrate what eternity feels like. When the plot begs to move forward, the film keeps lingering over friendly fawns and long walks through the forest.
