I am very interested in seeing this movie. It looks very powerful.

I was witty and fun, but incredibly intense as well. I highly recommend it. It kind of reminded me of Wonder Boys in a lot of ways, and made me go order that movie too, but it is vastly different in other ways too. I can't rave about this film enough.

How was Hermoine's American accent? Stuff like that distracts me...

She didn't have an accent. If you didn't know the actress, you'd have no idea she was English.

Cool!

I do want to see this, but I need to read the book first.

Fantastic film. It felt much more real than most high school coming of age films.

Excellent movie. Watson really shows some chops outside of the Harry Potter series. Great Pittsburgh setting. Really moved me.

Yeah, she was great. She reminded me a little of Ally Sheedy back in the day with her hair short like that.
