The Mysteries of Pittsburgh

I'm not saying the book is a masterpiece, but there are certainly scenes in it that are masterpieces.

From the look of the trailer, it looks like it has stripped all of the heart, the poignancy from what made the flawed novel incredibly memorable if not nothing short of remarkable for a debut.

Call me a cynic, but I don't have high hopes for Rawson Marshall Thurber, last seen directing Dodgeball, being able to adapt the lyricism of Chabon.

Time will tell.
