Quotes

Miles: The water tasted like... heaven. It floated over your tongue like a cloud.

A Great Adaptation From the Classic Novel
2 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I had to read 'Tuck Everlasting' when I was in junior high and I thought it was one of the best books I had ever read and I still do too. The movie was unbelievable! The cast was extraordinary. Out of all the performances in the movie, my favorite was Ben Kingsley. He fitted the image I had in my head of the man in the yellow suite and did a magnificent job. For all the people who have fallen in love with the book, they need to see the movie too. This is one of the few movies adapted from a book that is just as good as the boo itself. Go see the magic in 'Tuck Everlasting'.
