Prepare for the movie....read the book!

A new film starring Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks is scheduled for release next month.  "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" is based on the 2005 novel by Jonathan Safer Foer in which a young Manhattan boy deals with his father's death on 9/11.  The book received mixed reviews at the time, with some critics feeling that Foer was using the backdrop of a national tragedy to sell books.  With the passage of time, reaction to the setting of the book may have died down somewhat.  You might want to bring a box of tissues to the movie theater, though.....
