The Thief Lord - The Movie

So many movie adaptations of books are truly awful so when I heard that the new movie of The Thief Lord was going straight to video, I didn't think it bode well for the movie. I figured this was going to be another Ella Enchanted so I was pleasantly surprised when I sat down to watch it last night.

There are a few discrepancies (I'm sure I would have noticed even more if I reread the book recently), but overall they were fairly loyal to the plot of the book and the movie captured a little of the magical feeling Funke created in the book.

It might have benefited from being a little longer in order to include a little more from the book, but overall I really enjoyed the movie.
