A lovely adaptation. Follows the book quite well, all the main events are protrayed that I thought needed to be. Some of the speeches are a bit different and don't give the same atmosphere I got when reading the book, but it's really not an issue. VERY well acted, I cried three times the first time I watched it. Definitely a must for anyone who likes this kind of drama/adapation as it's well worth the watch. Also, if you are a fan of the yummy Richard Armitage who plays the male lead, you will love it!
