Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Demme succeeds uncannily well in bringing the novel's pulse to the screen.
Rotten: A dense, jangled cataclysm of enigma and outrage.
Fresh: A knot of fierce emotions that is left for the viewer to untangle. Make the effort.
Fresh: Beloved has power and impressive artistry to spare!
we had yo read this book for mt english 211 and this book is crazy i would suggest that you read the book first before you watch the movie or you will be confued but the movie will make more sence when you read the book
I liked this movie! However, I agree with the other reviewer that one should read the book first to better understand the movie. I believe the movie should have allowed the viewer to hear the thoughts of some of the characters for clarification. But love the book and glad Oprah decided to make the movie!
