"Read the book. It's a pretty intelligent and thought provoking exploration of love, ageing and loss.
his utter crap, on the other hand, totally misses the point of the novel, transforming it into the most idiotic, plot driven pile of Mills and Boon cack I've seen since the laughable bullshit of Billy Elliott.
The start is not what the author intended. The ending certainly isn't what the author intended. The script is utterly moronic, the acting is appalling even given the dialogue they have to cope with, and the whole thing is glossed over with music and photography calculated to have every tragic cat lady in the dumbest parts of America salivating into her TV dinner.
Everyone involved in this should be ashamed."
