Why bother?

Snore. Great book, but I can't see many teens being captivated by this overly reverent adaptation, unless they want to gape at Scarlett Johansson. Watching Vermeer's paint dry would be more entertaining.

depending on parents i say older teens and adults

this movie was very good its based off novel its about a maid named griet who is chosen to be painted by her master
this is based Johannes Vermeer and his paintings

pros
music very beautiful and peaceful
acting was wonderful especially the narnia girl anna popplewell
even though she only has a smal girl
costumes were amazing
scenery was unforgettable
the paintings were realistic

cons
a violent pig slaughter scene when griet picks up meat very graphic for PG13
mature scene very brief though
one use on of P***
terrible ending
