I read Story of Your Life so long ago, that apart from there being aliens and a child who died, I could not remember specifics. So it didn't get in the way, exactly, yet I did find myself going "huh" in the last quarter and trying to figure out how far off the story the film had gone.

That she wouldn't tell Ian (in the film) about Hannah's death until long after she was born seemed, well, not fair. Yet seems to paint her (in the film) as someone who embraces what life offers while he does not. I also didn't really get her being able to see the future just from learning their languageā€”is that what the film was saying?

I need to reread the story.

But I'm glad I saw the film. I think they didn't land the ending, but I did more or less enjoy it. A bit bored at the very beginning but then quite engaged. My son who never read the story liked it but thought they lost the plot when it came to the ending.
