The book I was actually getting frustrated that they were taking so long to find Margo but in the movie it happened in a split second. In the book it seemed he took forever to find the clues to finding where the famous Margo Roth Spiegelman took off to find who she was. In the movie the events were mixed up as well like they missed prom and graduation in the book but they made both of them in the movie. His friends just left him there at that abandoned barn to find Margo. But he never did find her at the barn like they had in the book.
