I read this book some time back and always thought it would be a great film. In my mind, I cast characters as I'm reading. For this book I thought of Clark Gable as August (if time were no issue), Rachel McAdams as Marlena, and Toby Maguire as Jacob. Well, I think they did a fine job casting, anyway,, and I can't wait to watch this movie. If you've haven't read the book, I hope you get a chance to because it's such a wonderful story.
