When questioned by the Los Angeles Times about why Warner Bros. believed that he's the right man to write and direct the film, Akiva Goldsman replied: "I'm the kind of romantic that likes to find the meaning in things.

I haven't read the novel but watched the movie directly. Its the movie about real-love, destiny and true soul-mate. All in our life is a mystery..whatever today's science was considered as Art earlier. The movie which is based upon the novel tried to depict the few above said things.
If you love real-love, destiny/fate you will certainly love this movie. This is not a normal movie, a unique one focuses more on love-destiny. The movie tend to answer few of the following: Why this world, why we are here, what about stars, what about angels/demons etc.
The world is fully of mystery/surprises. Be prepared to re-live your life. Thanks.
