I Have read the play and seen the film, Ray Lawler wrote the play extremely well. He did something interesting, in writing the play with accents. This is something i haven't seen before.
Leslie Norman however did a poor adaptation of the text version, simple things like getting the city wrong that the play was set in and Australian accents.

This film was a waste of my time, and a waste of everyone else's time who has ever watched it. I does not even deserve a 3 out of 10.
