Personally I think the movie focuses on her childish, selfish, obsessed with money & Ashley side. But she has good sides too, she's strong, hardworking, obstinate and generous. So I fear that you might end up not liking her at all if you start with the movie.
Not only did the movie make Scarlett more of a hitch, it also softened Rhett considerably. There's little of his cruel side evident.
