| Good but the book is better
I have just finished watching HOMP and I was rather disappointed. I have read the book several times. The movie is faithful to the book in some respects (some of the dialog is verbatim) but I think if you haven't read the book you miss much of the meaning of the dialog in the movie. It's almost like getting a summary of the book rather than a dramatization. One of the things that was a major change was the romantic relationship between Polly and the owner of the Potwell Inn. Maybe I expected too much from an hour and a half movie. I did enjoy it though and thought the acting was well done. I am looking forward to seeing the John Mills version.
