My Sister's Keeper

If you intend to see the new Cameron Diaz flick My Sister's Keeper, I must warn you: the movie's ending is completely different than the novels and that has left those who have read the book a little upset.

Change is inevitable. But devoted fans of the Jodi Picoult novel seem to be very angry that the film takes a 180 turn in the end, changing the vibe and message of the piece.

The main character was initially suppose to die but they gave the film a more "Hollywood ending". Now the scene is the complete opposite.

Whelp, that's Hollywood for you! You give them a masterpiece and they want to dilute it for mainstream purposes.

Jodi Picoult's statement on the ending was:

"Having the ending changed would certainly not have been my choice. I wrote the
ending very intentionally because I wanted to leave the reader with a certain
message. And changing that ending changes that message. However, I am excited to
see the movie and to judge it on its strengths."
Are you going to hit the theatres to watch this movie?
