Don't bother if you've read the book!
on 29 January 2015
I'm not an avid reader, often not even finishing a book before losing interest. However, I'm in the process of reading Goodnight Mr Tom for the third time, it's just such an incredible story.
With this in mind, I had great hopes for the TV movie, even knowing that it would never live up to the book. However, I found it to be an awful film adaptation! John Thaw isn't bad as Mr Tom, but the actor playing William is truly awful, terribe casting.
I'm hoping that a Hollywood film studio will pick it up one day and make a movie that does the book justice, but until then, give this a miss!
