Bridge to Terabithia. Just saw this.
What was that? I thought it was a kids film, but I'm gonna have to call it cutting edge art.
What I resented, was having the trailers trick me into thinking this was a feel-good Narnia-esque movie about kids in a magical land, when the actual plot was so much more grim. :angry
You guys are not wrong. I nearly bought the DVD for my mother-in-law one Christmas. Glad I didn't, now.But I remember thinking when they made the film that the marketing was really off.
QFT. My best friend had died suddenly that month, and for some reason me and my gf thought it would be a good movie to cheer us up. I was tricked, and I'm glad I was at the back of the theater because it was the straw that broke the camels back, emotionally for me. I hate this movie because of this.What you watched was an emotional kick in the bollocks.
I'm not saying the film was bad, or even that I disliked it. What I resented, was having the trailers trick me into thinking this was a feel-good Narnia-esque movie about kids in a magical land, when the actual plot was so much more grim. :angry
Yes, you are correct. As quoted by wikipedia" Paterson, the novel's author, drew inspiration for the novel from a real event that occurred in August 1974 when a friend of Paterson's son was struck by lightning and killed."The filmmaker? I thought the writer of the book based it on what happened to her son's childhood best friend?
