I must say I was a little disappointed with this movie. It strayed far from the book written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I had to do a term paper in college on this story and thought that by watching the movie I could better understand what Hawthorne was writing about. It is a good thing I read the book first. It would have been much better had they followed the book. They skipped so much of the original story that it barely resembled THE HOUSE OF THE SEVEN GABLES.
