I liked it. I cried. I was surprised by the ending, not what I expected. I had read some reviews critizing Peter Jackson the director on doing such a bad job on this movie, considering what a great job he did on Lord of the Rings. I think he did a great job. Loved some of the visuals of Susie Salmon in her waiting place. While the subject of a neighbor abducting young girls is horrific what they showed in the movie is how it can tear families apart, scar them and yet also show the healing process.
