Movie Monday...This week’s prompt for my #glenjensjanchallenge is Favourite Book To Screen Adaptation. Adapting a novel is always a divisive move. The consensus is that the book is always better and how can a director possibly envision something better than what’s in our own imagination? Yet what if a visual adaptation can enhance the story or even improve on the original source material?
The joy that books bring prove time and time again to be universal. The anticipation and collective experience of seeing a story brought to life on the big screen is a wonderful contrast to the solitary experience of reading. The story we may have loved just between our own selves can be shared with our loved ones and even encourage more readers. The release of a series or trilogy often leads to new memories being made and cherished, with a new tradition of seeing each instalment with the same friends or family, which was the case for me with The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
Adapting fan favourites can be a difficult task, but the perfect cast can recapture the magic of a story and its characters, as in the case of The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. A great director can even achieve Oscar success, in particular Slumdog Millionaire, The Revenant and the once considered impossible to film Life Of Pi. Ang Lee, Danny Boyle and Alejandro G. Inarritu are all bold, innovative and versatile directors who created three magnificent and visually dazzling film adaptations that remain firm favourites for me. So sometimes, books and films can stand side by side and become just as beloved as each other.
