I didn't read the book but I did see the movie based on it. Apparently there was a play based on it, too. The movie starred Anne Bancroft, JudiDench, and Anthony Hopkins, among others. My only complaint, since I fall in love with Anthony Hopkins' character in every movie--except when he's Hannibal Lecter, of course-- is that they didn't get together in a romantic way. I think he was happily married to someone else. In the book, maybe their relationship comes across more as the "warm friendship" described by Leonard Maltin i his movie guide, but in the movie, maybe because of the charisma of the two main characters, or perhaps only my romantic soul, I felt they should have ended up together,like In Shadowlands, the true story of C.S. Lewis meeting and falling in love with an American poet. They do marry, as I recall. Happy sigh.
