I'm sure people who haven't read the book will like this. Basically, they took the majority of the symbolism from the original novel out, and what they were left with was a shallow historical romance. Accents were atrocious too, and some of the plot was fiddled with if I remember rightly. My English class had great fun ripping the piss out of this film. The sad thing is, I know Zeta-Jones can act, but her talent was mysteriously absent here.
