Not a good adaptation...
I've seen every version that has been made of this lovely novel and they all have added their own twists but, this adaptation made me cringe. The actors did the best they could with what was given them. I'm thoroughly disappointed with this movie. They took a childhood favorite and made it into a weird underwhelming Disney movie. I truly wanted to like this. I can't say I do.
