Most of us have had the situation of liking a book more than the adaptation necessary for creating a film from a popular book. This happened to me today or at least half of it did. I have not read the highly acclaimed book The Goldfinch and I went to see the film. Well goodness, it was Tuesday special of $5 for a matinee film AND free popcorn. I am glad I spent only $5 on the ticket as I didn’t really enjoy the film very much. Those of you who have read my reviews know I pretty much just like film but not this time. I don’t think I will bother to read the book even knowing the character development is much more indept and the plot less confusing.
I’d say$5 is about what The Goldfinch is worth!
Have any of you see the film or read the book? I would love to hear from you . . . .
