Though I knew the book is very popular, I had never looked into it, let alone read it. But when I saw the trailer of the movie I just had to go see it. As I tend to miss the movies I want to see most, I figured I had to do it soon. So I went yesterday.
It was amazing! The vibe is a bit similar to Restless, but there are so many more facets to this story that the comparison has to end there. I've always loved films that were like this, but I felt that -despite not having had anything to do with most of the themes- I somehow connected with this one the most emotionally.
One minute rule definitely applies here!
The cast is phenomenal. Logan Lerman nails this lead, Emma Watson did such a great job that I wasn't once reminded of Harry Potter, I always seem to like Mae Whitman, and Ezra Miller, oh Ezra Miller... He was my absolute favorite! Paul Rudd has a small part as well and it was just that bit of icing on the cake.
Also, if you're a fan of the book you won't be let down by the movie, as the actual author did, not only the screenplay, but the directing as well.
Long story short: GO SEE THIS FILM!
