I cried while watching this movie, which NEVER happens. And that experience was profound and beautiful and authentic, all words which describe this movie and are what make it great. And, really, thank you Spike Jonze for trying to make me cry without ever insulting me! Most filmmakers don't have that decency.

Thanks for an excellent review of an excellent movie. I agree that the tone was right and that it was a more adult, more emotional story than the book. I have to say, though, I am surprised how much I missed the visual palette of the book - the dark and earthy moodiness of the woods versus the sun-brightened desert and seashores of the film. I didn't think the locations worked as well as I would have liked.
