This movie seems light and easy on the surface...engaging and entertaining, but there is so much more depth to the movie and the characters than what appears at first blush.
The main character, a teenage girl seemingly lost, takes us on an introspective journey through our teenage years, our early adulthood, our complicated marriages and all the important and complicated relationships that influenced each of those stages of our lives.
The characters are intricate and smart and multi-layered. The book is even smarter! I rented the movie after reading the book and I loved them both so much that I may need to read the book again and re-rent the movie!
Highly recommend both!
