It was more difficult to find differences between the two than similarities. There are so many characters that resemble each other, with personality alone, that anyone could tell the movie was “like totally” based on the novel. They show so much comparability that has been changed the slightest, to bring the novel back into a 20th century classic that everyone loves. Some distinct contrasts include the time eras, clothing styles, and age difference. While many more similarities exist including: the main characters losing their mothers, their outrageous wealth, and the dominant roles played within their communities and

These chapters are the ones in the point of view of Minerva and Patria. We know it is written in first person because it uses the word “I said” rather that “Minerva said”. Both of these characters are strong willed individuals and I think it shows throughout the book. Having these sisters’ stories in first person point of view really helps with being able to see how they viewed life and what was occurring around them. Having them telling their own stories helps us to connect better with them and come to love them even more.

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
A commonality shared with almost all movies that are based off a book or comic, is the comment “ the book is always better” this stems from the feelings of disappointment that many feel when the movie doesn 't get something exactly right. This is because, the movie and the book are drastically different, mostly because of the different time period and background of the author and the director.

The book’s view on their romance shows it as merely a means to an end for Ichabod, he falls in love not with
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, there are many changes between the novel and the film. In the “Spinner’s End” scene, there are alterations in Snape’s character that change the viewer’s perception of him.

Introduction The film Carrie (Brian De Palma, 1976) follows the protagonist Carrie White, Sissy Spacek, who is a shy high school student residing in a small town. After receiving her first period, she acquires telekinetic powers, which turns her world around; especially since she did not understand what the change meant for her as a new woman. Although Carrie is a horror film, the underlying meaning points to feminism as it embarks on the discovery of power, and threatening the patriarchal order. Carrie is a feminist film where fear comes not in blood or telekinesis, but the fears of a strong woman. The film uses cinematic techniques to further push this implicit meaning by ways of cinematography, mise-en-scene, and editing.
