This movie looks like it will make me cold.  And sad.  Neither of which I am a very big fan of.  But that star-studded cast is pretty alluring, so we'll see.  

Will you see it?  


  1. I saw a preview for this one but didn't know it was based on a book. It looks sad and hard to read or watch but I might still see the movie.

    1. Yeah, it looks like it's going to be well done, but considering what a tragedy it is I'm not sure I want to read the book or watch the film. It's just too sad.
