I went to the movies to see it also, CWS. I have not read the book. While I thought the story and the acting were excellent
, the two rape scenes disturbed me to the point of physical and emotional nausea, like nothing
I've ever seen before, and I don't shock all that easily.
If anyone has the slightest thought of seeing this movie with a youngster thinking the R rating is tame.....think again. The scenes could have been dealt with effectively in a more creative and less graphic way. It really makes me wonder why these film makers can't be more creative and less gross.
