I Loved the Book, but I Hated the Movie! I Loved the Movie, but I Hated the Book! : How to Enjoy Adaptations More
Has this frustrating situation with adaptations ever happened to you? Chances are, it has. Telling the same story in two very different mediums—film and literature—is always a tricky endeavor, and sometimes the results are so different from what we expect that it can be difficult to appreciate both. Yet, by understanding our experiences as the audience in more depth, we can learn to enjoy both mediums much more. Please join me for a lively discussion of the challenges of adaptation and of some of the film/book adaptations that tend to cause disagreements even among the best of friends, all while gathering the skills necessary to really enjoy that next adaptation.
