What was the last book to movie adaptation you enjoyed?
I enjoy reading as much as I enjoy watching films and I have unfortunately watched many a letdown of film adaptations, some were absolutely underwhelming due to the film not staying true to the book or the characters not properly fleshed out due to time constraints. But there are some that have been equally brilliant as their source.
One example I could give would be Mystic River by my favorite author Dennis Lehane. Its film adaptation of the same title was masterfully directed by Clint Eastwood and acted with such heart, pain and grit by Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon among others.
When it comes to film adaptations it is truly a hit or miss as it is difficult to coherently compact pages upon pages of character and story development and minute details into 90-120 minutes in the big screen.
