The scene towards the end, 'The Packing Scene' I shall call it, I don't want to give away any spoilers, made me cry. What was said by Charlie when he was talking about himself, it was almost like he was talking about me. It hit me hard. Such a good adaption of a book. It doesn't included everything from the book, but it definitely has the whole essence anyway. I think that might be because Stephen wrote the screenplay too and directed. A great watch!
