Not too bad...
16 November 2002 | by hershiser2See all my reviews

...but not too good. The story starts with a weak narration in present times, telling a story... Then we flash back to the 1960s and some crazy scenery. The acting in this film is not the best; in fact, the best performances are by the children, who are the most believable characters in the film.

This certainly isn't the best adaptation of the novel, but also not the worst.
