Bridge to Terabithia-the movie

I really scoffed at the trailers on this movie, what the hell were they thinking putting monsters in one of the most wonderful books. Today I watched the movie on Starz. begrudgingly at first, then pleased and moved by how true the movie is to the book, then, my jaws were aching with held back sobs, though I have read the book many times, to myself, to my students. I take back my negative thoughts about the imagination made visible from the book and say yes, the movie is really good, and true to the book.

I was of the same mind. I was so dissapointed that the trailers presented it as just another Hollywood CGI extravaganza with no hint of the orignal, moving story line. Now I will make it a point to get the DVD when Amazon has it on sale.
