I don't remember the last time I watched the movie, but watching it after reading the autobiography might change my rating from 10/10 to 9/10 or less.
The struggle is too minimized, they kind of represented a too aggressive picture of him, some of the important quotes were interpolated. His siblings and most importantly Ella and Wilfred were completely removed from the biopic script, I don't understand why they certainly had huge impact on his life.
I wish they could've gave more attention to the chapter where he got to know the true Islam, and I wish they mentioned the part where he met king Faisal of Saudi Arabia.

Ultimately, a great worth watching movie that is one my all time favorites, I strongly recommend the book though.
