I'll probably give it a go. I haven't read the book, but it has Viggo Mortenson :P

Read some very conflicting reviews today - 2 stars from the Indie but 5 from the Times! (And as far as I can see it's not a movie connected to the Murdoch media empire in production or UK distribution.)

Will probably go and see it next week.

This is one of those movies that they said could never be made, could never do the original, justice.
The book is incredible, the writing style just as bleak as the subject matter, pared down to the bone. It will be interesting to see how the conversion to the big screen pans out, but I'm already prepared to be disappointed.

The musical numbers might spoil the tone a little. And the custard pie fight.
