It was really interesting to read this and realize this was what spurred the movie. Had I read this before seeing the film, I think it might have edged closer to four stars, but it’s difficult to compare the very small bits of connection one gets in this short story with the depth of the relationship that we see on screen. The inconsistent dialect in the dialogue threw me just a bit, too.

That said, the story of Jack and Ennis is a powerful one, if tragic, and they are definitely characters that hold a special place for me regardless of where I find them.
