Booking through Thursday
This week we discuss the following,
What book do you think should be made into a movie? And do you have any suggestions for the producers?
Or, What book do you think should NEVER be made into a movie?
Here is my suggestion, a few weeks ago I read this book,
Black Diamond by Catherine Bailey. This was a true story of a wealthy, English family. I think this would make a wonderful movie, it has everything I look for in a good movie; History(the general strike , and miners' working conditions), wealth, poverty, aristocracy, stately homes, family feuds,there were also connections with the Kennedy clan. It follows the family tree till the last Earl Fitzwilliam died .
An excellent book, I can see all the stage stalwarts in the cast, Dame Maggie Smith, Sir Derek Jacobi, Dame Judi Dench to name a few. It would bve a great treat for movie goers.
