If you haven't read the book, run out and get yourself a copy. It is an enthralling, lush, poetic, and richly layered fairytale set in the New York City of yesteryear. I'm not at all convinced that one 2 hour movie will do it any kind of justice. This is the kind of book that needs to be done in installments to render it proper service.
Have you read the book? What do you think of the casting? Who would you pick to play Peter, Beverly, Isaac, Pearly, Virgina, Hardesty, Abby?
