The Rules Of Attraction

I bought this on ebay and got it through today and have already watched it all. Has anyone else seen it?

I read the book a while ago and was pretty curious about how they could make it into a film, but it worked really well. I just couldn't stop crying though! I think it's the saddest film I've ever seen. When I said this to my mum, she was like "Isn't it just all about sex and drugs?" Yeah, it is, but it's also about the problems that come from them.

The first scene especially was just heartbreaking. I mean, if I say what it was then it'll just sound grotesque, and it was. But I just felt so so sorry for the character.

It was a great film though, and I reccomend it to anyone who likes sick films (yay!)

Well yeah, it is just mainly people having sex! But it's so sad when that girl kills herself.

When I saw itin the cinema I actually started laughing at thesuicideit seemed so over the top and melodramatic especiallywith the music that is playing but then the camera holds just that wee bit too long and the dutch angles make it very distressing and brilliant

In the book it's pretty funny, but in the film I just thought it was sad.
