I saw the movie before I read this screenplay, but I enjoyed both immensely. I"m a huge Alan Rickman fan, and recommend TMD wholeheartedly in whatever form you can get it.
If you're not familiar with the plot, the main character, Nina, is still unable to recover from the death of her lover, Jamie; the speculation is that it's been over a year. Then, after an unusually bad evening, he comes back, in the flesh, as if he were willed by Nina's pleas. Instead, Jamie helps her to grow, to open her eyes to the life around her, while making her unbelievably happy (at first). The book provides a lesson for everyone who needs their eyes opened. Anthony Minghella is a classic writer/director--he take any love story and turn it into something new.
