It's been said that Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio" is unadaptable to film. Well, having read the book, and watching this movie....it's a pretty damn good try! I can't rate it exceptional because it's obviously not a big Hollywood studio film with A list actors and a huge budget or whatever, but they hit the major characters from the book and I can tell they had to consolidate a few characteristics from others, I'm guessing for time and budget constraints but, hey, good job overall!
