"Whatham did an extraordinary job of doing a faithful AR version, stunningly accurate in terms of mood and feel. So there's always the DVD..."
Exactly. Why bother making a new film that has -- planned into it from the beginning -- features that were not in the story at all?
I remember telling my two girls when they were small that if ever anyone made a film of S&A I'd take them to see it. Then we found out that indeed there was just such a film, and that it was the book brought to life. That was forty-odd years ago, and in my view that film was, and remains, unsurpassable.
So why are they bothering with this version? I for one have no intention of seeing it. Nor will I be taking my grandchildren. But as Peter says, there's always the DVD of the original.
