Having attended the preview viewing of the film a month ago and passing an opinion in Message 42729, I had the good fortune to attend the World Premiere in Keswick last weekend. The second viewing confirmed my original thoughts about what I had seen. The film is recognisable as the story we all know and love but not as we all know and love it. The link between this and the original written material is about as close as the one between Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' and The Gospels. It's certainly there but there is an awful lot of stuff added and an awful lot of stuff taken away. Good film though, my grandchildren will love it. Do not go if you are a purist.... 'cos you won't like it.
