Good Movie
25 November 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I read the book in the beginning of the year, because a teacher recommended it to me. Later in the year we watched this in class. Wow all the people really looked like i thought they would. It was an amazing movie. But they edited out some good parts.
