I adored the novella, but I didn't feel Danes and Martin projected the chemistry they should have. The film followed the book, relatively, but I feel there should have been more narration to express some of the scenes that were so well written in the book. With that said, I was, however, very impressed with Schwartzman's portrayal of Jeremy.
