Interesting well acted movie.
28 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was good and the book it is based on is one of those rare novels that is so well written you think you are observing the characters first hand and it is almost like losing friends when the story ends. Deserves to be seen AND read.!!!
