Based on the Book

Literary adaptations have forever provoked us to debate: Book or movie? In this collection, we bring the written word to the screen so you can decide for yourself! These movies are all based on literature, including a Shakespearean tragedy (HAMLET), a work from Charles Dickens (NICHOLAS NICKLEBY), a play about the life of poet T.S. Eliot (TOM & VIV), a classic by Emily Brontë (WUTHERING HEIGHTS), and a few novels by contemporary literary icons Jack Kerouac (BIG SUR) and Haruki Murakami (NORWEGIAN WOOD). Plus a saga so successful in Europe (THE MILLENNIUM TRILOGY) that we needed an American version (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO), and many more!
