This is, hands down, one of my top five favorite movies. it draws you in and when it ends, you feel like some good friends moved away. rarely i get emotionally invested in a movie but with this one, i couldn't help it. i cried even my first few times watching it. the book is just as good, if not better in some aspects. amazing acting by all the major characters and a wonderful soundtrack too. i ¢¾ it!
