I know I'm probably the last one in the world to see this, lol, but I finally did get around to it.


I liked it... but not as much as I thought I would. It stayed fairly true to the book (which I also only just read), and there were some moving and touching parts, but I thought it was a little long (2 hours would have been plenty) and it didn't always "grab" me, as I've heard others say it did for them.


I do think, for being Whoopi Goldberg's first film (it said), she was fantastic in it!

Nope, you're not the last.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the last to have seen it.


It was on my "Movies I Always Meant to See" list that I'm slowly making my way through. All in all, I'm glad I saw it, but it wasn't a favorite, by any means.
