We watched the movie as a class assignment after reading the book and i must say i really liked the movie, but the book is still so much better! so if you liked the movie, i advise you to read the book - its fantastic! Many key points in the book (or so i thought) was not in the movie, an example is Janie's trial after she kills Tea Cake and several of the characters were also Unfortunately left out. But it is a very good movie - especially for a made for TV movie.
to everyone who enjoys a good movie with some meaning to it; see this movie
to everyone who have read the book; the movie is great and really does the book justice (As least as much as can be expected from a movie made for such a great book)
