I just ran across a mention that they are making (have made) a film of this wonderful book starring Eric Bana and that it's coming out this summer- does anyone know anything about it?

As you might discern, I love love love this book and think it could make a great movie. So...anyone?
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Rachel McAdams is Claire (!!!! love it!!!!)
Ron Livingston is Gomez

I absolutely adore this book and I think that Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams are both inspired casting. Thanks to your reminder, I checked IMDB and they have a couple of production photos up, which is exciting.

SO excited for the movie. The book was a total tear-jerker, but somehow avoided the usual traps chick-lit falls into.

Love the book and happy the movie was made. I thought it might stall indefinitely because I believe Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston had bought the rights...

I really loved this book. I think it'll be tough to film though. Film may lend it a literal interpretation that doesn't suit it.
