I had read the book three times when it first came out, so I was excited when I got the chance to see the movie. I was just hoping they didn't ruin the book. I know films can't be like the books, so I carefully did not re-read it.
They did an awesome job with the film. They captured the story, the flavor, the essence of the book, even if they did have to leave some things out. I loved the girls playing Alba.
There was laughing at the funny parts and some crying at the sad. My sister loved it. She had no intentions of reading it and only saw the movie just because I wanna saw. She was also crying when the movie was over, and now, she has the book.
This is a romantic chick flick! Though the one guy, a friend of mine, was also crying at the end. He did say he loved it.
I am just giving it 4 out of 5 as some of the scenes was haven't been filmed in the dark, like a lot of Hollywood Movies does.
4 / 5
