Books To Blockbusters: Grazia's Top 5 Favourite Big Screen Literary Adaptations
A Room With A View by E. M. Forster
I was going to pick Atonement as I love Keira in a costume drama, but changed my mind in favour of an adaptation starring her costume predecessor Helena Bonham Carter. I actually saw the film before I read the book but totally related to both Carter and E. M. Forster’s versions of heroine Lucy Honeychurch. Daniel Day-Lewis is brilliantly awkward as Cecil Vyse – and if only all boys were as passionate as George Emerson.
