Day 19: Favorite book turned into a movie.
I want to make that 'Favorite book turned into a GOOD movie.' Lord knows there are plenty of the other kind.
I actually saw the movie of A room with a View first and then read the book. Merchant-Ivory did a whole series of really decent movie adaptations of E.M. Forster books back in the 80s, including Maurice and Howard's End, but I think this one was the best of all. Maggie Smith, Helena Bonham Carter and Daniel Day Lewis are superb in this.
Honorable mention of the 6 part BBC series of Pride and Prejudice with Jennifer Ehle. Not technically a movie, but well done none the less.
