There were actually quite a few contestants up for that one. Not easy to choose but at this time last year we to the cinema to see „Carol“ and were quite blown away. The actors, the colors – what a wonderful adaptation. I had read the book before again so was actually pretty up to date and I loved the movie so much.
If you are interested in reading more about the book you can find my review here:
Other books that were turned into pretty good movies were „Der Vorleser„, „Never let me go„, „Atonement“ or „The English Patient“ to name just a few. For a very recent one I would nominate „Arrival“ but here I only heart that it is a very good adaptation of Ted Chiang’s novel as I have not read it myself yet.
I’m wrecking my brain for terrible adaptations, there definitely are some, but it looks like I managed to completely erase them from my brain.
Which film adaptation did you love and were there any that you truly hated ?
