Movies don’t have a complex storyline as movies shorten the story down to a simple plot with slight similarities to the book it is based off of. Most of the time, the script does not do the story justice. Movies are limited as it relies on visual stimulation and having to tell a story primarily through dialogue. It is tough for filmmakers to depict the inner conflicts of a character’s mind thus making it very shallow and lacking in depth. Furthermore, movies are visual and auditory.

Boo drove the scissors into his parents leg…,¨ as he was sitting in his house cutting up newspaper for his book (Lee 13).

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow: Analysis “…The body of the trooper, having been buried in the churchyard, the ghost rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head… (Page 18). Washington Irving draws readers into his short story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” by exploring the life of Ichabod Crane, an odd schoolteacher who strived to impress women.

In this section of Drama and Dramatic Poetry, my English class read “Trifles” and “POOF!”. “Trifles” is a one-act play that is dramatic and serious. In this play, the husband, John Wright, was found strangled with a rope in his bedroom and all of the evidence points to his wife, Minnie Foster. The question explored throughout the play is why she killed him. The story hints that she was a victim of domestic violence, but the audience cannot be absolutely sure because it does not outright say it.

Orme 1 Ava Orme Dr. Shadden-Cobb Writing 24 Oct. 2016 The Outsiders: Book vs. Movie When you read a book and then watch the movie of that book, there will always be a few differences. The Outsiders book and movie hold that statement true. Most of the more important events are the same, but a lot of the details do not match up.
Another similarity is that Ponyboy 's parents were killed in an automobile accident. In both the movie and the book is the heroic attribute of both Johnny and Ponyboy saving those kids in the burning church. Another thing that is the same is that after the rumble Dally and Ponyboy go and see Johnny, and after he dies, Dally goes and robs a store and is then shot down by the police. Some discrepancies between the book and the movie are that in the movie it left out a copious amount of Ponyboy being sick at the end, after Dally was killed.
I think one of the big differences was West Egg vs East Egg. In the movie, West Egg and East Egg were never at one point described as “old money” and “new money”

In the book there was not even the slightest thought of releasing Fiona ,but in the movie they decided to add in an irrelevant detail about them trying to release her to “Elsewhere”, The Giver was the only one who wanted to be released so that he could see his daughter, Rosemary, again. So, I think the movie team could have done a lot better on the movie than they actually did. To conclude, the book and movie, “The Giver”, have many similarities but also many differences. The movie crew tried to stay true to the story, but did not really accomplish it.
