Audience Reviews for A Separate Peace
A separate peace was a book I love as a high school. I'm not sure I would love it as much as an adult. In any case this was a disappointment because it really just skimmed the story. The gay subtext is still there but the focus on friendship nearly disappears. It also gets wrapped up in a warm fuzzy way that was very different from the book ending.
A bit trite, or maybe just familiar (and I liked "Dead Poet's Society" better, but I liked the scenery, and since I went to an all-girl's school, I'm a bit of a sucker for this sort of movie. Otherwise, I might have given this one an "OK" 2 stars.
I just don?t understand why there isn?t a decent movie made about this awful book. It just doesn?t make sense to me; basically every high school has to read this. They can?t make a timeless version that people will be interested in seeing so it makes the book more tolerable? It seems like a no-brainer. Either that, or education needs to be revamped as whole and the canon rethought.
