Favorite book turned into a movie

I think the BBC did an excellent job adapting Sarah Waters’ novel Fingersmith. It’s well worth the watch.

I also loved what Robert Redford did with Judith Guest’s novel, Ordinary People. If you haven’t seen this movie, Mary Tyler Moore is a revelation.

I think it would be easier to talk about the botched film adaptations: The Time Traveler’s Wife (so bad), One Day (even though I haven’t seen the movie, Anne Hatheway’s accent – and I adore Anne Hatheway and think she’s a terrific actress – is horrible)
