A wonderfully, appropriately sentimental film (albeit a bit slow), and -- even setting nostalgia aside -- a masterpiece of adaptation, art direction, and execution. Blew me away. A.
It's hard to set nostalgia aside, of course, and I have some powerful and joyous memories of reading this book to a child dear to me. Seeing the movie brought them back in a happy way, too.
