"This movie was disappointing. Perhaps I could have appreciated if I hadn't read the book first, but I couldn't stand the changes that were made in the adaptation. They seemed pointless and changed the relationships between the characters. There was a lack of insight into the characters thoughts and far too much of the plot was removed or altered. Having said that, Carey Mulligan did a great job as Kathy. I just wish that Kazuo Ishiguro's text had come through, instead of a typical tear-jerking movie."
