This Weeks question asks: Even though it’s usually a mistake (grin) … do movies made out of books make you want to read the original?
My answer: Yes. Definitely. Every time I see a movie weather it be fiction or not and I find out it was based off a book, as long as I liked the movie, I look up the book and read that as well which gives me more story and detail but at times I am disappointed after I read the book and find out how much was left out. The same thing happened to me when I saw the movie Julie & Julia. I had no idea it was based off the book (I know....). After that I went crazy to find the book, Julie Powell's original blog (which I found yay:), the book of letters between Paul Child and his twin, the book of letters between Julia Child and Avis Devoto. It opened up a whole other corner of books I didn't know about. It has been exciting. But at the same time, I have a soft spot for cooking/foodie movies and memoirs/based on a true story. This movie and book put two of my favorites together.
The book Julie & Julia by Julie Powell, about her journey with french cooking and blogging it to the world.
The movie Julie & Julia based off the book (obviously). Very good movie:)
