I read this book a few months before I saw the movie. The book wasn't amazing, but it was better than the movie which is usually the case. I think the movie could have stayed truer to the book and done much better. I feel the book left you with less of that "dirty" feeling. I was also surprised to find Meg Ryan in this. It's not her typical role, and not one that I think she was well suited for. I really wonder what she saw in the script that prompted her to sign on for this movie.

"Ultimately one has to wonder what in the hell is wrong with Jane Campion. I wish intuitive, well-educated intellectuals like herself would apply their talents elsewhere instead of making films--particularly this sort of thought-provoking but degrading nihilism. We're all painfully aware it's a jungle out there and about choices, okay? Please quit trying to punish your audiences. Not surprised to find Jennifer Jason Leigh in a gig like this (also exceedingly bright, of course), but for people like Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo this is artful slumming at best. And while there are certainly persons in real life that engage in these levels of unprotected adult activity, it should hardly be advertised so recklessly and ascribed as the nonchalant behaviors of police detectives and teachers and medical students. I don't say that as a prude but as someone less educated that nevertheless heeded the obvious lessons of the AIDS crisis. To see a movie like this, you'd think it never occurred, that multiple levels of society in the developed nations of the world never changed."
