I might not have read the book before going to this movie, but I could definitely tell that if there was a story, it was missing. In my opinion, this is definitely a case of “read the book before watching the movie.”
I had gone to this movie with a friend who did happen to read the book, and she also said they barely told the story. What I took from watching this movie was that the producers were more concentrated on the sexual parts of the movie rather than the story behind everything. While I was able to comprehend what was going on, I felt as if there was something I was missing out on the entire time.
I had read in an article somewhere that the author said that if the movie producers were to include every detail in the book, then the movie would be six hours long. Well in this case, why not concentrate less on the sex, and more on the story?
There are plenty of things to complain about, but if I was to do that then I might give out spoilers; that’s not nice of me. But I would’ve liked to have seen more of a story rather than sex when I went to see the movie. It has great potential, but I feel the producers should manage what they put more time into when making these movies. Maybe better actors as well?
Overall, it was not that great of a movie.
