Why was I not exposed to this novel before it became a movie. I missed the decades when it was required high school reading, being an adolescent book and me being a mature man. I was moved by it and picked up a copy last week to rewatch. Very well presented and powerful reminder that with all the evil and things that go wrong in the world there are so many positive experiences of love and beauty and truth that life is worth the risk.
Great message. Enjoyed the extras about how it took almost 20 years to get the book to the screen. And blue eyed Odeya Rush has such a bright acting future ahead.
