The journey from page to screen is not as easy as it seems. Many have tried: some have succeeded in writing brilliant screenplays while some made fool out of themselves. Below are the few names which in my opinion were amazing adaptations. (For my comments kindly read captions)
1) The shawshank Redemption
2) The Godfather
3) Forrest Gump
4) LOTR Trilogy
5) The Great Gatsby
7) Gone With The Wind
Don’t worry I have yet to watch To Kill a Mocking Bird, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Fight Club and other outstanding adaptations. Feel free to recommend some!
P.s For Potterheads, I know it was a brilliant series but, trust me, Rowling was better at her job as compared to the screenplay writers.
