tbh i think they could have done more with it. I enjoyed the film and did have a tear but was abit disappointed at the end. I wanted to know what happened with the rest of the family especially the dad. But I would recommend every one watch. I guess mikes right and im just difficult to please :lol: :lol: :lol:

The thing is it's a children's book so a children's film and that's why it's very different to films like Schindler's List.

It's on the English syllabus in lots of schools now and in fact my sister-in-law is doing it with her Year 7s.

Anyone here seen Sophie's Choice? My God, that's a harrowing one too! :(

I havent seen the film as i read the book a year or so ago and loved it; was afraid the film would ruin it for me, but if you say its good then i may have to have a nosey!
i bought the book on an amazon recommendation, not actually knowing what it was about. i was guessing ahead (and guessed pretty much right, but i thought the boys father was someone else at first!) absolutely excellent read.

I love Curious Incident of the dog in the night time. I work in Special Needs, and I thought it described most of the kids i teach to a tee. Often wondered what some of them were thinking.
