This movie is definitely one you have follow close and is more cerebral than action oriented. I liked it but admittedly it is not for everyone.

Saw it in theater so my attention was rapt. Very poorly told. Bad editing. I read the book and wasn't as confusing as the movie. Great acting. Good story. Ending makes sense but one of those movies where they decided to be so coy thinking it was dramatic and it winds up just being a jumbled mess.

I'm thinking I may try to read a synopsis or two before viewing again.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

In the past I've read books that later were made into movies. Without exception, I always favored the book's story over the film. I eventually realized that a movie can never reach the level of detail, timelines and characters that the book rendered so freely.

I therefore decided to experiment by not watching movies that were based on books I had read; and similarly, I stopped reading books that I had already seen as movies.

That was about ten years ago ... I'm still pleasantly experimenting and enjoying movies like never before.
