Omg I'm a huge fan of Paulo Coelho and this is one of my favorite books by him that's now gonna be a movie. Has anyone read "Veronika Decides to Die?" I recommend it like BIG TIME as it was such a touching book that made me think seriously about the meaning of my life and of living life to the fullest and being true to yourself. Anybody else a fan that's excited for this movie? Oh and the leading actress is gonna be Sarah Michelle Gellar. I haven't seen her in a movie in awhile.

Yea I don't think it will be better then the book. I envisioned the story completely different then the movie. I think the movie was made for more mainstream audiences. Because I'm pretty sure I remember Veronika living in a village in Eastern Europe but in the movie she is working in a corporate setting and I think in the U.S. Maybe its to make the character more relatable to audiences. I swear if critics compare it to "Girl Interrupted" I'll be ****ed :mad: just cuz I can see some saying its a rip off of that movie even though its not.

I canīt see the trailer right now, so I canīt judge on how it looks...
The story takes place in Slovenia, Ljubljana...so I imagined it like this too (of course) :D So if they changed the place to America, it would be very difficult for me to accept it :)
Now we can just wait what ELSE they have changed... nooo :hea:

I've read the book a long time ago. It was rather mediocre. It had some good ideas on insanity but that's just that.

I don't think it has a release date as of yet. But it should come out this year... Although I wish they'd give it a date already lol. I just love the song in the trailer... its sad but yet lovely. Sometimes things that are so melancholic can also be so beautiful lol
