Great Novels You Never Knew, Adapted for Film

Motion picture adaptations of books too often disappoint those of us who love good films. Undeniably, there are a great many films that are thought-provoking, entertaining, emotionally engaging, or informative enough to work well on their own. However, in this class, we are primarily looking for relatively rare artistic accomplishments: films that are worthy of their subject matter, as well as of the fiction works upon which they are based. In fact, in the universe of far more than 30,000 films, there are arguably very few movie adaptations that have the merit to withstand the test of time. These are films that do justice to and even expand on their original novels and/or screenplays.
