When you not familiar with the book or just look at the title, you not sure what to expect from this movie. This movie is one of those movies that really moves you and whether you want to or not at some point during the movie you end up trying to fight your own emotions. It is a deep, sentimental movie. To the writers i love the way you took on the story especial if you dealing with a child with autistic spectrum disorder. You would get at some point annoyed with Oskar (Thomas Horn) who comes across as a spoilt brat. At the same time who also feel sympathetic towards the boy who just lost his anchor, his friend, his father Thomas Schell (Tom Hanks) and in his own unusual weird way try to deal with his grief. Overall the execution was good, love the choice of music they chose for the movie. Just disappointed that you only see the mom in the beginning then again near to the end. Hanks presence was strong in the beginning of the movie and when his character appeared here and there. Its a beautiful story and its worth watching.
Movie is available in stores on both DVD and Blu ray
