The movie alone:
Although I am biased by knowing the original story, I did feel the movie was only a 3-star film. It moved really quickly through the main events and I would have liked them to be explained a little more throughout. It was a rushed movie with many "years later" sections and I think, had I not read the book first, I would have been lost.
Now, for those who have read the book:
Not like the book! For this part, I'd give the movie a 1-star review. I completely understand needing to leave parts of the story out in order to fit the story into a film (though really, it should have been longer than 90 minutes) but the directors changed and added so much, it doesn't even feel like the right story. I felt that Cathy's character was weaker in the movie than in the book and I didn't like her as much, though they did give her a little fire towards the end.
Things that were different (SPOILERS):
1. Henny is not deaf.
2. Paul's funeral is the opening, so he doesn't even have a speaking part! He played a huge role throughout the story, so I was baffled to see them kill off his character before he even made an entrance.
3. Julian just seemed thrown in only for Cathy to have Jory. He was so naturally introduced in the novel that by the time he married Cathy, I was really on the fence on whether to hate or love him. In the movie, I just hated him for being the abusive guy Cathy ran to. Oh, and they threw in a "let's put glass in another dancer's shoes so Cathy can have the main role" and didn't give her talent any real focus. They made it seem like she only got roles in thanks to Julian, when really she held her own on stage.
