The book is fascinating - educates about science, and develops respect for the family and their mother's legacy. it prompts discussions about the ethical issue of the cells. The move, on the other hand, is a family drama with the cells as a prop. Makes the family look crazy - not the point of the book at all. Characters seem stereotypical, poor, uneducated. If you liked the book, the movie is sure to disappoint. The best part of the movie is the credits in the begnining - edgy, informative quickly telling the history of the cells.
