Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie reviews (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.
I really wasn't sure what to expect from the movie so I didn't go into it with any preconceived notions. I did enjoy the movie, but it didn't give me that warm and happy feeling the book did. It crammed a lot of emotion and events into a small time and I don't think that quite worked for me in the movie.
I, however, loved how they did the flash backs between current time and the past. It was so interesting to see the story unfold in both eras and how they eventually connected. The acting was good, but Sarah was not quite how I pictured her. You could definitely feel her conflict and her guilt, but her younger self wasn't as docile as I imaged her to be. The one thing I wasn't expecting was that since most of the story takes place in France you have to read a good part of the dialogue, unless of course you can understand French. I don't mind reading subtitles but I feel like I miss more of the story because if I look away for something then I miss what's being said.
I did enjoy this movie, but the book is one hundred times better
