Thought for the Day

Posted on July 15, 2010. Filed under: Ramblings | Tags: , , |

I know I should be over this by now, but I ended up talking to one of the teachers at school today about My Sister’s Keeper.

She was planning to show the film to her students in order to spark some discussion about the issues raised.  Like me, she’d enjoyed the book and thought it had an important message.  I asked her if she’d seen the film or knew about the changes they’d made to the plot, and when I filled her in she decided that the movie version had lost it’s poignant message and decided not to show it.  We both agreed that the butchering of the ending took so much away from the film that it became pointless.

Well done Nick Cassavetes and co.

I will definitely be able to comment on the change of ending better when I have read the book 🙂
