I absolutely love all Jodi Picoult books - but 'The Pact' is one of my favourites. So, whilst I had read the poor reviews for the film, I was still keen to see it. However, it is as poor as the other reviews have said! It has none of the detail and intimacy of the book. When the film finished I was still sat there waiting for the second half! I couldn't believe that that was it. The court case, which is central to the book, was hardly touched upon.
A mediocre film by itself, but a real disappointment if you know the book.
