Our Classics Book Club had the opportunity this year to read along with the PBS series, Masterpiece Classics. We read the novels, then watched the film adaptations featured on PBS and were treated to several guests sent to visit our club by PBS. The guests were involved with the making of the films--people such as screenwriters! We like to compare films to books all the time in Classics, and as readers normally have it, we have issues with several films. The PBS adaptations were no exception. One of the films we watched, however, seemed to "pass" our rigorous readerly discussion of honoring the original classic novel while recreating the story in film. That title was the new adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles.
EnJOY, & Happy Holidays!
