I heard mixed reviews but I really liked it! By the end of the movie I was all emotional and felt horrible for Suise Salmon played by Saoirse Ronan. I think Saoirse did an amazing job-her narration was almost hypnotic.
I'm curious about the book now. Wow, I watched a movie first before reading the book!
We all want that first sentence hook-check out this one from the book!
"I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973."
Who would not want to turn the page after that.It was a tough subject to watch but it was done well. I did send the kids out of the room when I realized what was going to happen. It made for good conversation about stranger danger before they were bribed with candy to play upstairs....sorry I had to watch it!
I would watch this movie again! Still sobbing about it on this Monday morning. I can imagine how emotional the book will be.
Anyone read it yet?
