Like many other reviewers have said, this movie cannot compare to the book. However, I didn't really expect it to. I think the movie portrayed the story well, and the actors were fabulous. I thought the set and costumes were incredible, and I loved the little subtle things the director did such as freezing the characters and using mirrors. Keira Knightley is probably my favorite actress, and she did such a good job. People who haven't read the book will probably like it better than those who have, but it's a phenomenal film, nonetheless. I recommend everyone who likes classics go see it!
