Decent Adaptation of the Book
4 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just recently finished reading the book Flowers for Algernon and then recently watched the movie to see the comparisons and contrasts. This movie really does follow the book in a pretty solid way, but as many say the book is always better. So anyway Charlie Gordon is mentally challenged, but wants to be smart just like everyone else. So he continuously goes to night school and falls for the teacher Ms. Kinian. Just at the moment two scientists are having a procedure on a human being to increase their intelligence and Charlie is chosen. It is good to see the man become just like everyone else, but in the end it all turns from happy to sad for him once again. Decent movie for those who read the book.
