Disappointed at the changes the film makes from the book. Its a quiet, understated drama, worth watching but fans of the novel will be frustrated.

I don't know. I liked the first part of the movie. Then the triangle drama started, and it just went downhill from there. The romance parts and the story in general just felt all to generic and unrealistic after that point.

And that is a shame because the first part of this movie has lots of great chemistry, and it's overall interesting. It was never boring, more like the opposite. It kept me wishing constantly that I knew more about them, and that I would see them and their relationship evolve. I very much wish they could have developed this part much further instead of the typical teenage romance stuff that occurs instead.

Also, the movie with it's "implied" things and "open" conclusions just felt lazy in this case. At the end, I was kinda thinking the whole thing just felt a bit cheap.

The potential here was huge, and like (almost) always with movies like that, it was wasted.
