Look. I know some people who really love the book didn’t like the movie but I thought they did they did a really good job. I thought it was very artistic and Leonardo DiCaprio did an amazing job and it was aesthetically very pleasing, a good time. Although I think Tobey Maguire is one of the most boring people to watch on screen otherwise, great movie.
