Pick one (or more) answers and write a comment.
Your favourite novel has been turned into a film. Compromises have been made.
What do you do?
a) – Enjoy the film anyway, as a film.
b) – Say nothing, but leave the cinema disappointed.
c) – Say (perhaps through gritted teeth): “I respect the director had to change the story to make it work better on film.” Leave a “But-” hanging in the air.
d) – Rant to your friends and work colleagues about how the director has ruined the book. Ennumerate in detail in which specific ways the film fails to follow the book.
e) – Go on-line and troll the director’s Twitter/FaceBook/Google+/Instagram/Pinterest account.
