“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you're not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald
Literature and film
Film and literature are two different roads that lead to the same destination. Often, they cross paths; did you know that over 50% of commercial movies are book adaptation? Then why do we still insist on comparing them to each other?
Sometimes you crave the instant, intense feeling of relief and elation a movie can provide; sometimes you want to form your own mental images and to immerse yourself in a world of words for a longer period of time. We say film and literature are interrelated yet independent forms of art, and we refuse to choose. We love them both equally!
