After writing my first version of this post, I found some new adaptations that I fell in love with! So here’s my list of favourite book to movie adaptations, continued.
The Fault in Our Stars (John Green) Okay, I know everyone’s talking about it and it’s not very new, but…isn’t it a fantastic adaptation? Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen) Joe Wright is potentially my new favourite director. This is such a beautiful film! I loved all of the characters, the cinematography and the screenplay. After spending so long toiling over the book, it was so refreshing to watch a slightly easier-on-the-brain version.
Anna Karenina (Leo Tolstoy) This one’s a bit of a cheat because I haven’t actually read the book! (I’m YOUNG – I have time!) Joe Wright strikes again with a really unique and breath-taking film. I loved the way the scene changes worked as though it were playing out on stage; it was all so gracefully done. In all honesty though, I think I’d have been happier watching a film solely about Konstantin and Kitty’s story – they’re the cutest thing.
What are some of your favourite book to movie adaptations? Did you like any of the ones I mentioned?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
