The movie, directed by Alfonso Cauron, is absolutely brilliant though, have you watched it? It's a lot different to the book but it's still absolutely fantastic.
I haven't read Jane Eyre yet, I read a few pages of it but didn't continue reading it because the book fell apart XD. I watched one of the movie versions. It was the most boring period movie I've ever watched.
Well, "tragic" as in "she is so impossibly unfortunate".
A bit unrealistic. Even the Baudelaire siblings had a bit of luck--at least they're still alive and had each other.
Err... No. Not a lot of those kinds of movies come here. They're usually either really famous, Korean soap operas, Kung Fu movies, or Bollywood stuff.
Awww, well it's a good movie.
But isn't ASoUE a bit unrealistic too? and Sara Crewe just happened not to have any siblings and her father went off to war and died like alot of men did (not surprisingly).
But each to their own =)
Well, as Phil says, "At least you're still alive". And they have each other. And people who care for them but just can't be there. And it ended sort-of happy... And anyways, her "friends" at the boarding-place-thing and the matron was too cruel to exist. Even Olaf had a good side, the Baudelaires had a bad side (they lied, held a knife against their siblings in an attempt to kill them, burned down a hotel, etc.), and it was real enough--no human in this world is all bad or all good. What occurs is just misunderstandings and stuff.
Oh, and ASoUE is a bit meant to be unrealistic, because with the person the books are being dedicated to being mentioned, the author being "in" the story and all that, they didn't want to make the books too "real-life", I think.
