The 5 Worst Movies That Come From Great Books
At the heart of this piece, which was written specifically for reluctant readers, is an interesting discussion about what happens to an art piece (in this instance, a book) when it is translated into another medium (a movie). Asking students who read this piece to wrestle with the pros and cons of this kind of translation may lead to a great philosophic discussion about art in culture, the film production business in general, or the merits or reading something as opposed to trying to experience it in the theater.
