The Reader's Digest Condensed Version
I saw this movie on a plane in the middle of the night--not ideal viewing
conditions--and found it acceptable airplane fare to while away long
but nothing remarkable. I'd read the book earlier, so was curious to see
how it might be handled as a film. Well...
They followed the book pretty closely, but it's a 400+ page novel. Rather
than redevelop the ideas in the story for the tighter format required by
screen, they tried to keep in all the various plot elements and cut out
detail needed to preserve the story's integrity. What a pity.
The question of what happens to a family who loses a child to some unknown
person/event is an interesting one worthy of exploration. The twist of
having that child found again nine years later opens another can of worms.
The book manages to develop the characters of the whole family better than
the film, which concentrates on Beth and Sam, but both result in a "too
perfect" ending that doesn't really satisfy.
I suspect that the film has a fairly strong appeal for the mature (50+)
female audience...but they don't seem to be such keen movie goers. It
do well on TV....

Hmm...well, I just recently saw this movie (on video) and I was drawn to
by the plot, I guess. I won't take the time to explain the plot because
read many of the other reviews and they explain most of it. I very much
enjoyed Jonathan Jackson's character and the emotional struggle that he
through. It was (in my opinion) the best performance I've seen him do. I
must admit, it wasn't the best movie I've seen. It was just lacking
something throughout the whole movie.Weaker in some points, but stronger
others. I got teary-eyed, but not exactly bawling. All in all, it was a
