Do you realize how many events and choices that had to occur since the birth of the universe, leading to the making of you just exactly the way you are?
I guess I never really thought about that.
Maybe now's the time to start thinking about it.

I was speechless after the credits started rolling. The women next to me asked what I thought. I told them some of the crucial, pivotal aspects they had so obviously left out of the film version by choice. It was a fatal mistake and I believe they did it for reasons that directly contradict L'Engle's reason for writing the book in the first place. "Sounds like we should go read the book." That was the best message I could offer to anyone else who wants to know about the movie. Forget it. Go read the book. The movie is a hundred-million-dollar backstreet rape, bereft of all magic or joy. This film was made by the creatures of Camazotz and offered at the altar of IT..
Such a shame. I really was looking forward to this one. What we got is smply dreadful.
