I was thinking how pretty much everyone I have ever encountered agrees that the movie version of a book never lives up to the book. And I agree. I love movies, but if the movie is based on a book I have read, I go into knowing that it will disappoint me in some way. However, there are some exceptions. Here are just a few movies that come immediately to mind.
Pride and Prejudice-The BBC version with Colin Firth. Also, the recent film version with Keira Knightley. While definitely not perfect, I think it was wonderful.
Jane Eyre-the version which was relesed this year. I loved it!
Little Women with Winona Ryder.
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Harry Potter films
These are movies that I liked better than the books:
In Her Shoes
Under the Tuscan Sun
Bridget Jones Diary
I would love to hear what films based on books you have enjoyed, and which films you liked more than the books.
