50 Best Film Adaptations

The movie is not usually as good as the book, but some films will surprise you with their representation of a work of literature. The Guardian brought together a panel of experts to vote on the 50 best film adaptations of all time. There are some movies you will not see none of the books of the Harry Potter series are on the list, nor are the Lord of the Rings books. One surprise: Jane Austen is included, but for Pride and Prejudice instead of Oscar winner Sense and Sensibility. Short stories and non-fiction stories are also allowed, giving Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas a fair shot. And some choices are no surprise at all, like Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's and the classic family favorite Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.
