No wonder Julia Roberts agreed to the movie. (Haven’t seen the movie though; in theory Roberts and Bardem sounds like a great pairing.)
Finally saw the movie. Can’t say the movie captured the author’s emotional arc as related in the book, but then, how many movie adapations do justice to to a well-written book. especially an autobiograpical narrative. Still, I like Julai Roberts since Steel Magonilas. She can express so much gravitas with that mobile mouth of hers. 8/10, Julai Roberts.
