Now I Can See The Movie

When a movie based on a book is released, I try to make it a point to read the book first. Yeah, that usually means that I don’t enjoy the movie as much, but I want the true picture first. I like to be able to make a comparison in my head between what the author said and how it was translated onto the big screen.

I’ve spent the past few days reading “Revolutionary Road” by Richard Yates and am so ready for the movie now. Set in the 50s, this book never felt antiquated or behind-the-times: the themes and the writing were timeless.

It was a fabulous book and I could see Kate Winslet in my head as April the entire time I read it (Leo, on the other hand? Well, I guess I’ll decide for myself when I finally see the movie).
