It was better than Thor love and thunder
The movie followed the book closely without sacrificing any of the key elements. Very well acted and beautiful setting. I also appreciated no gore or foul language.
Great movie super good story could use a little less sex scenes though.
Breathtakingly beautiful in every way.
I would say the CLOSEST book to movie adaptation I've ever seen and I'm happy for it.
Very underrated movie you just need to watch!
Fantastic book put to the screen beautifully.
Corny and boring AF
Enjoyed the changes from the book. Liked the ending
I need to read the book! 🤓
If you didn't read the book like I didn't, then the ending will be great. Kept me guessing. Good movie.
Very good even for those who read the book
Cried my heart out this movie was good now I need to read the book.
I really liked it and loved that it stressed how we all need to be good and kind to each other
touching heartfelt movie
A little slow in the middle but I loved the story!
Leaves you on your seat till the very end !!!
Well done! Visually stimulating and had a surprising ending. Makes me want to read the book.
One of the best I've seen in a long time
Thoroughly enjoyed this. Thoughtfully done!
Closely follows the book
Movie did and amazing job recreating the book!
Amazing movie I loved it from the beginning to the end♥️movie
While the ending is surprising, it leaves some plot holes between the end of the trial and the end of the movie.
I was not expecting to love it as much as I did. Definitely a must see.
Don’t read about this movie before you go because you will miss the “wow” fun part of you know too much about what is going to happen, so save it to be able to enjoy the surprise!
Best book to movie I’ve seen
A really great book to screen adaptation!
A little slow at moments but overall a good plot line.
An amazing sleeper of a film. I'm so glad I saw it!!
So good but please still read the book. The imagery in the words cannot be put in a film. But the movie was wonderful.
Movie was ok. Was trying not to fall asleep.
It keeps you intrigued and makes you think alot over all good movie
I never read the book and glad I didn't. Great surprising things in the movie. I think it made it better without reading the book first
i love this film... if you haven't seen it yet, must go see it. if if you've read the novel...
This is NOT a chick flick. Men take your wives to see this movie. You both will love it.
I read the book first and the movie was done real well
Best movie of the year!!!!
One of the best movies I’ve seen in so long. Heartbreaking and so beautiful
It was a really good movie. It did not follow the book exactly, but they never do. Very much enjoyed it. A great cast and acting.
Good story surprise ending. Not at all what I was expecting.
Great movie! Surprise ending.
Does the fact the film largely ignores the book’s treatise on nature and virtue absolve it of all connections to Owens’s real-life controversies? It certainly doesn’t, on an artistic level, improve what’s already contained on the page. Newman’s vision of rural South Carolina is scrubbed so clean you might as well call it #swampcore – the Spanish moss looks bright and pristine, the flower petals on the water almost consciously arranged.
Director Olivia Newman (First Match) bathes the story in so many broad, creaky tropes and odd tonal shifts that nothing ever feels real for a moment.
Instead of a complicated protagonist at the centre of an atmospheric thriller Edgar-Jones seems trapped in an ill-advised antebellum-themed Taylor Swift music video, exacerbated further by Swift’s dulcet tones heard over the end credits.
