I watched this film after reading the book and all I can say is "Worst film ever". The book was actually better then the film and I (and many others) would rate the book as also the worst book ever to be published.
The film seems to overlook all the detail in the book that you need in order to truly develop the characters and allow you to feel in any way pity for them. I would strongly advise against watching this movie.
