Yes, the book was better, as is normally the case, but a most important movie telling a most tragic yet heroic story! Great job by Ms. Hayek, naturally!

An eye-opener that is based on a true story. Good!

The movie is fairly true to the book, and is a good adaptation but it doesn't really capture the essence of the sisters in the novel.

This is a powerful movie. Selema Hayek does an excellent job. 4 stars to this movie.
