Read the book first and thought wow, this is a very powerful, slightly disturbing book that reminded me of another classic book, To Kill a Mockingbird.
The movie adaptation of the book definatly does the book justice. The casting is pretty damn amazing. If I had had to pick actors for the roles, most would be the same ones who did appear in the movie. Again, very powerful, moving movie that handles a delicate and explosive subject with tact and grace.
As the book reminded me of an earlier book, the movie version reminded me of the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird. Perfect or as near as dammit outside of my own imagination.
Must watch movie!
