The film did a good job at bringing the book to life. The film and book and good companions, the film can be watched before, after or during reading the book.
Not sure the zookeeper’s wife would have been worn, such a pale dress to work on the zoo or the heels. At least it did show her kicking off the shoes when working like resuscitating new born elephant. But when pitchforking hay not sure barefoot or heels were appropriate.
Worth watching, although not many cinemas seem to be showing it.
