] I was disappointed with the book. Should I still see the movie or will I be further disappointed -- any thoughts?
Well, first of all there is a little twist in the ending of the movie, which you would find interesting.
Secondly, now that you know the story, I don't think you would find the film as upsetting... and it is BEAUTIFUL to look at.The scenery, both in England and Australia is extraordinary, and it really embodies the symbolism of the difference between the old and new worlds. Ralph Fiennes brings Oscar to life quite amazingly too - and the costumes and so forth are wonderful.
I liked it because I got to listen to Australian accents for two hours - but that is just personal!!!
