An example of one of these book/movies is Where the Red Fern Grows, written by Wilson Rawls in 1961, and directed by Norman Tokar in 1974. The movie is very different from the novel in many ways, yet there are many similarities. As a reader of the novel and a viewer of the movie, I believe that the things that has completely changed the course of the story and yet have similarities that kept the basic
As far as the movie goes it is very well done by paying homage to Krakauer’s Into the Wild. However because the movie is very linear in story telling as well as watered down characterization of Chris McCandless, the movie a watered down version of a story told with a much more interesting characterization and plot narrative. The novel Into the Wild combines the thrilling
To summarize this essay, there are several points that highlight differences between the two films, yet the overall context of the film remains the same. One common theme that tends to drive the force between the reasoning in why the two films have varying aspects is because they were made for slightly different audiences at different times in society. Though both versions of the movie have small portions that vary from one another, the main emphasis is the same and both versions are loved by the
One huge difference in the setting, in the book the story takes place on the shore of lake Michigan in a brand new apartment building in a small town. On the other hand the movie takes place old, run down apartment in the middle of a huge city. Another example is the characters, in the book there are 16 heirs with eight pairs. In the movie there are 10 heirs and 5 pairs. Also the movie leaves out some huge characters like Theo Theodorakis, Flora Baumbach, and
A major difference is that there are some characters that were in the book that aren't in the movie like Flora Baumbach, Theo Theodorakis, and Madame Hoo. Even though the movie wasn’t as good or as exciting as the book, they were both interesting and are fun to read and listen
The movie only focuses on the story of the Andrea Gail and the men from Gloucester. I think the overall story is better off this way. For example, I think if the book was written like this, the reader would become more connected to the characters and the book. The reader would go through the same emotions and feelings as the characters because they experienced the same event simultaneously. All in all, I think the book has a great story, but lacks a proper structure for the story at hand.
This shows how Ross will hold his loyalty to whomever is of power. To conclude, there are many similarities and differences in any film adaptation of a beloved novel or play. However, it is up to the audience to decide which version they enjoyed
The movie and novel share similar qualities. For example, both feature all of the same characters. Ponyboy, Darry, and Sodapop are brothers.
Yet the distinct differences between them also affect the plots to an extent to which the suspense in the movie is less compared to the novel. Although the differences greatly alter the two, it makes each of them unique and exclusive from each other. Despite these differences, there is one theme that links both the novel and the movie together: that people with different personalities, interests, and appearances are also the same to each other. The book shows more examples of this theme than the movie, making the novel more understanding to other individuals than the film itself. Because of this, we would recommend the book and film to those who experience a likeliness to the conflicts in each storyline, such as a fight between two different social
In the end I found the film to be easier to understand vs the book as it was an easier and more straight forward plot line whereas in the book it seemed to jump around leading to constant flipping between stories and pages to get a better
Anyone can have a story in their life and can turn it into a book. Jon Krakauer wrote Into the Wild on what happened to Christopher McCandless and turned his story into a novel. Jon Krakauer´s structure his novel to let the reader have their own opinions on Christopher McCandless by stating the book is on his bias viewpoint, putting it in non-chronological order, and wrote about his own background life story, which is all important to strengthen Krakauer 's motive of writing his book.
