When it comes to movies that are based on books, there are only two kinds of people: those who need to read the book before heading out to the cinema and those who prefer to venture in blindly. I’m definitely in the first group, even if it sometimes brings pain to me and those around me. My family starts to moan as soon as they hear me say, “but in the book…” Heartbreaking though it is when a film lets me down, there’s nothing I love more than seeing a director perfectly capture the spirit and feel of a cherished book.There’s a great crop of movie adaptations coming your way this spring. If you’re like me, you’ll want to take a quick look at any titles you haven’t already read. Then you’ll be ready to sit back and enjoy the show!
