Skip the movie, read the book., 24 January 2005
When I didn't realize that one of my favorite books, A Lantern In Her
Hand, was being made into a movie until I saw it on TV. This is another
case of an adaptation that strays too far from the book and with a few
changes could have been an original story. The movie doesn't do justice
to the book at all. Nancy McKeon was the wrong choice for Abby. She's a
great actress but not right for this part. Some of the decisions they
faced as a family and a couple were changed, altering the dynamics
between the characters.
My advice is to stay away from the movie and go read the book and the
sequel, which is "A White Bird Flying."
