☆ sophie ☆’s review published on Letterboxd:
okay, adaptation. the shaky cam sucks, and the editing is so choppy. the sets and costumes are great for the most part. but they leave a lot out from the book. it's so difficult to transcribe first-person narration from book to screen without voiceover. music by james newton howard is fantastic. he understood the assignment and then some. rue's farewell is heartbreaking and powerful. good movie.
