I saw the movie, guys. After a year of waiting, I saw it tonight and it was the most wonderful and heartbreaking thing I have ever seen. It was beautiful. I didn't think the movie would compare to the book. I never think that movie adaptations compare to the book. But this one might have been better. I don't know. Maybe.
What amazed me is that it was directed and written by Stephen Chbosky. He had entire creative control over the movie. That is amazing. I firmly believe that that is why the movie was so fantastic. Every single important part was covered in such a wonderful way that I learned even more about the story. It's almost like it was a completely new story, yet the plot was followed.
|This was one of my favorite scenes. I bet you can guess what it was.|
And Logan Lerman is just the most perfect human in the world. He was so marvelous I almost fell in love with him.
The movie was so emotional. So. Much. Crying. I was surrounded by sniffling people wiping their eyes every 5 seconds (not that I wasn't crying). And then at the end, everyone clapped. They actually applauded the film. I had never been more proud of humanity.
It's wonderful, guys. Whether you've read the book or not, please go see it. It's heartbreaking and life-changing.
