Heylo beautiful people!! So, I just finished reading two more books that were made into movies, and watched the movies after reading the books too. I have done a part 1 of this post, so if you are interested in reading some more of this, you can check out my post here. 🙂
So, here is part 2 of my list of what I thought about the movies that were based on these books that I read 🙂
Book: Simon Vs The HomoSapiens Agenda by Becky Albertelli / Movie: Love, Simon
Ok, I loved both the book and the movie. The book is different from the movie in the sense that it doesn’t just focus on Simon, but also on Leah, his sister and the ending is different from the movie. But nevertheless, the acting in the movie, and the choice of cast could not have been better. I loved everyone in the movie and I felt the same mushy feeling at the end of the movie that I felt at the end of the book. I would recommend both the book and the movie to everyone out there- also, it is not necessary you read or watch it in any order- I think it will be worth it 🙂
Favorite Song from the movie soundtrack : Troy Sivan’s Strawberries and Cigarettes song- to die for!!
Book: Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman / Movie: Call Me By Your Name
Its unusual for me to find out about the book from the screen adaptation. Usually, I read the book and later find out that it might be made into a movie or a series. With this however, one day while I was mindlessly scrolling through YouTube, I found a song by Sufjan Stevens, featuring two very handsome and talented actors – Timothee Chalamet and Armie Van Hammer. I dug for more and found out that the song was from a movie. Then I dug some more and found out that the movie was based on a book! So I went ahead and instantly bought the book and read it. I loved the book and the story. There was some sexual content that felt was a little explicit for my own comfort, but otherwise the story and especially the setting in the book – an idyllic summer with a talented and artsy Italian family in Italy, seemed heavenly. Then I watched the movie and oh my goodness, I loved the movie even more!! The soundtrack, the acting, the cinematography, the fact that the movie stays so true to the essence of the book – everything was superb! I loved it and the songs stayed with me for a week and have become a recent favorite 🙂 I cried at the end of this movie, but they were good tears 🙂
Favorite song from the movie soundtrack: Mystery of Love by Sufjan Stevens 🙂 (I love all the three songs by him in this movie actually, but this one is my favorite)
