I found this first half of the movie to be alright. There isn't a lot of talking and the small amount where someone does pipe up is hardly profound, this coupled with the worst music selections EVER! The lack of talking would have been better if the acting was better, I just found the acting to be incredibly awkward.
The second half of the movie left me thinking to myself, 'What just happened?' But not in a good way. The supernatural vibe at the end came out of no where, and the move between the dream world and real world plus the flashbacks was just too much. I was highly bemused by the whole movie. I understand this was a book so maybe taking something out of the book and turning it into a narration wouldn't have gone astray.
