In the movie as well there are many parts that are changed from the book. Of course, this may happen in many movies, but the writers from this movie took it to a whole new level. One of the things that are changed in the book is the timeline in which all of these events occur. Making this film very “fake” compared to the original book. In the movie they make the road trip to find Margo just days before prom, making it very possible for them to skip it. While in the book, prom has already happened and what they are actually skipping is the graduation. They leave just before the graduation starts making not only the starting point of the film wrong but the whole story in a completely different timeline. This is what makes the writers of the film have to add stuff to the movie that never actually happened in the book, in order to make the film more like the book. One example of this may be like the scene of the t-shirts that is changed. In the movie Ben, (Quentin 's friend) drops some pee, on the t-shirt of Radar (another friend of Quentin which was also on the road trip), which makes them take a stop in order to get some new shirts for Radar and Ben. While in the book, the three of them had a promise with Quentin and it was that they would go naked under their robes for graduation but since they never actually went to graduation they, had to get some clothes because they were naked under their cap and gown making them have to make a pit stop in order to get

Another difference is Donna's reaction when first seeing Cujo. In the book, she is clumsy, and described as "paralyzed." But, in the movie, she is mainly focused and worried on getting Tad safe, and Cujo off the car's window. A final difference that is changed between the movie and book, are the names. Donna's name is the same in both the book and movie, but not her son's.
Furthermore, in the book Hannah doesn’t have a love interest, but in the movie Ariel asks Hannah out on a date and she accepts. In addition, Hannah also had different friends between the book and the movie. In the movie Hannah is friends with Esther and Rivka, but in the book Hannah is friends with Esther, Yentel, Rachel, Shifre, and Rivka. To move on, a major difference is that the book and the movie begin differently. In the book, the story begins with Hannah complaining about going to the Seder with her family.
In the book they didn't talk about when everybody was saying LeAlan and Lloyd was getting punked by David. I think they didn't put that in the book because David Isay wasn't a important character. Also because he never was in the book and that conflict was mostly affecting him. Another thing that happened in the movie but not in the book is that LeAlan is starting to believe everything the people was saying about David but Lloyd didn't.
IN the book, there was no part in the book where Lloyd and his sister, and her boyfriend Duane was playing cards and Lloyd was about to get shot because he cheated and his friend caught him and was about to shoot up the whole house but in the movie there was. In the movie there was a Duane , but in the book there was no Duane. Sophie didn’t even have a boyfriend. This means that the movie and the book aren’t similar and once again there were misconceptions between the book and the movie which can confuse both the reader and
Another difference is that in the movie they go into town, but in the book it 's never mentioned. Something else that was different was that in the book the mood was happy most of the time, while in the movie the mood was sad. A difference between the book and the movie is that in the book momma was going to burn Byron, but in the movie she does not burn him. A big difference is that in the
There were a lot of things that were the same in the book and movie Freak the Mighty. There also was some difference. Some of the difference weren 't really a big difference, so some people may not have noticed them. Some of the other differences were big differences so most people probably noticed them if they paid attention to both. Some difference I recognized were that in the book when Max and Kevin were getting the purse out of the sewer they hooked it to a paper clip and string to pull it out, in the movie Max went in the well to get the purse.
“One was a book thief. The other stole the sky.” In the book, The Book Thief, Markus Zusak uses this quote to compare two of the main characters, Max and Liesel. Brian Percival directed this movie.. This book is a Bildungsroman, set in Germany at the time of World War II.
Another difference is that in the movie Darry pushed Ponyboy where as in the book he slapped him, right before Ponyboy and Johnny ran away. I think that at the rumble when Ponyboy got punched first instead of Darry was one of the biggest differences between the movie and the book. A minute contrast between the movie and the book was that in the book they explained the rules before the rumble, but in the movie they did
(Ray, 2015). Because the movie is so much more condensed than the book, many details are left out. The movie spends little time in District 12 and The Capitol. This eliminates some characters who were in the book from being in the movie. Madge Undersee was in the book but not in the movie.
As for example when Sofia Harpo's wife is sent to prison for knocking out the mayor, in the book it is said to have happened the night she comes home with her new man. But in the movie Sofia lives with her family for a couple of weeks in town. Although it doesn’t drastically change the movie itself, but it changes other parts in the movie to where one can notice the out of placement given. Something else that is highly out of place is how in the book the reader is able to learn about Netties life as she writes to Celie, but in the movie we as reader never learn about Netties adult life until Celie finds her letters with Shug. Then later on Nettie comes home with her new family to reunite with Celie after thirty
The book Of Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck and directed by Gary Sinise has very similar themes to the movie. In both George, and Lennie are working towards the American Dream. George tells Lennie stories about a farm with cow, pigs, and chickens. In the movie he said almost the exact same thing: "We're gonna have a cow, and some pigs, and we're gonna have, maybe, maybe, a chicken. " This is their "dream" that they hope their work will eventually pay off in.
Such as the fact that Nick never meets Tom and Myrtle’s downstairs neighbors, the McKee’s, directly, how Daisy gave Gatsby his name because he introduced himself as Jay Gatz, and how Myrtle never purchased the dog directly though it is still present in the movie. There is also the fact that Gatsby and Nick are not introduced the same way as they are in the book. In the book Nick is sitting at a table with Jordan and Gatsby and mentions that he hasn’t seen the host. Nick still mentions that in the book, but Gatsby mentions Nick over without Jordan in sight changing that small piece of the storyline. The other minor difference that you pick up in the movie that you do not see throughout the book is that Daisy looks like she knows Gatsby is poor when she meets him, which changes the way their relationship is perceived.
It’s true that the events happen in both, but the order is changed, which basically changes the whole story. Also, one part that was left out of the movie that did occur in the book is when Elizabeth is in Italy learning Italian. In the book, she takes classes in an academy while in the movie there is no academy mentioned and she learns Italian from her friends. The author spent a lot of pages describing her classes and what she felt, and it the movie it seems that it was an irrelevant detail so it was
The beginning of the book it starts different than the movie. Mary adapts faster to England in the movie than in the book. Mary meets Colin the same way as the book she meets him when he is crying because he can’t sleep. She talks with him for a while. They didn’t have in the book of Mary and Colin gazing at the pictures of there mothers but in the movie
