I saw Winona Rider's Girl, Interrupted this weekend. They had to "dumb it down" quite a bit to turn the book into a movie. I think it would be tough to translate this book directly to film, especially a mainstream hollywood film. I thought they did a fine job of bringing some of the ideas in the book to the screen, though. And Angelina Jolie was fun to watch. I don't think this film will be very successful at the box office. it's a tough one.
