H/T to SugarFree for the topic!
We’ve all been there. We take a chance on viewing a film adaptation of a beloved book. And, most of the time in my experience, it’s a shitshow. Often not having any relation to the book whatsoever.
Or, the film stays pretty true to the book, then in the last 30 minutes, it changes direction which completely reverses the point of the original book.
The only one I can think of off the top of my head that didn’t disappoint me was the 1993 version of The Secret Garden.
