Satisfied My Expectations

by pjmacky (WorldCat user published 2012-11-08) Excellent Permalink

When requesting this item, I knew that with the actors that were chosen for this film it would be a great adaptation of the novel. I for one was not let down in the least. It was all I expected and more. Highly recommend.
