The most striking feature of this movie is the performance of Ronan and Tucci. Both prove to be the finest of actors. As for the story, I found the visualisations of "Susie in between heaven and earth" beautifully shot yet unnecessary, distracting, not contributing to the storyline. The ending was unsatisfying. I haven't read Sebold's original novel, but if this movie is anything to go by then I don't feel inclined to.
