Good Movie, Better Book
The movie was actually very well-put together, but they left out several important things that were in the novel, including the existence of a child advocate, the way the court found out about the reason for her suit, and the fact that in the novel, Anna lived at the fire station for most of the trial because her mother was the opposing council. Let’s not forget the fact that they added characters –the aunt and the various other family members. They even changed the end of the story! The majority of the details remained the same, such as Campbell’s condition, the name of his service dog, and most of the listed medical procedures Anna endured, but there are still depths of the story that are left out because of the narration style (they did well at the beginning, but they tried to keep it all from Anna’s POV after that, and that doesn’t work for this story…) This is actually one of the reasons I wasn’t sure I wanted to watch the movie: Hollywood is prone to ruining good stories. The movie was wonderful, as long as you don’t try to reconcile it too closely with the novel it’s based on.
strayed from what i hoped it was about
I wanted to watch this movie because I thought it would be about morality and the ethics behind genetic manipulation, designer babies and a parents right over their child. I was wrong. Although it begins seeming like it, it soon became a drama, dealing with a girls decision to die and the mothers choice against it. To say the least, I was slightly disappointed at the beginning, when they immediately started straying from the morality issues and started with a roll of flashbacks. Of course, I got over this and started to see the emotional aspects of the family and how they were struggling through the troubles that plague them.
Needless to say, it was breathtaking. I cried, I laughed, I smiled at how normal the family seems. It wasn’t a stereotypical straight plot. It seemed longer then it actually was, and that was a good thing. They put a lot of things in the movie, and yet it wasn’t choppy or hurried.
To watch this movie was amazing.
just, if your expecting what I was expecting, you won’t get it. but you will still watch a great movie.
