Ms. Shields deserved better, 29 September 2003
Author: wjmorton from Petitcodiac, Canada

Words cannot describe the distance between the novel and the piece of work on the screen. Yes, I know, "novels suffer in transition to the screen." But they should not suffer this badly. Carol shields deserves better treatment and not from a "Bollywood" director who claims to be Canadian by paperwork.
