Crystal S. from MONTICELLO, KY
Reviewed on 8/30/2009...
This is a great family movie, especially one for sisters that struggle with thier relationship and can't quite figure out what they want to do with thier life. A good follow up is to read the story from the bible of Jacob and Esau, and how they overcame diffrences and wrongs and loved each other more in the end!

Movie Reviews

The book is better.
S. Nelson | NAPLES, FL United States | 01/12/2003
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This is a story about a girl in an isolated community trying to find her identity in the shadow of her beautiful and much-loved sister. It was a good thing that I had read the book first because the movie looses much of the story, including the problems with the relationships between Sara Louise, the captain, and her sister. The movie, as usual, changes quite a few important parts of the story, making it a superficial production. My recommendation - read the book first then get the movie from the local library, don't spend money renting it."
Touching, suspenseful, and brilliant

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the story of a young woman who lives on a secluded island (Bridget Fonda.) She has a selfish sister who she is insanely jealous of due to her beauty and stardom in the village they live in. Bridget meets an old man who was at one time "banished" from the village due to an accident that was not his fault. She learns the lessons of life, love, friendship and tradgedy through this man. A great movie for pre-teens and above"
Read the book; skip this

"Katherine Paterson's book Jacob Have I Loved is touching and well-written. The movie is awful -- it changes the plot and the relationships between the characters, and misses all the subtleties of the rivalry between the sisters. Spend your time reading the book and skip this execrable movie."
