To commemorate the holiday season I am going to make a string of special posts inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas. This year the countdown will be on my favourite film adaptations of books. Keep in mind that in most cases the printed version is still better the film but this list is for films that have done a great job at capturing the spirit of the novel or are just purely entertaining. So enjoy and let the fun begin:)

12 The Client
11 Dracula
10 Breakfast at Tiffany's 
9 The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe 
8 The Great Gatsby 
7 Circle of Friends 
6 The Count of Monte Cristo 
5 Jane Eyre
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
3 Fahrenheit 451
Could you see yourself living in a world where books were banned? This is a reality in this movie. What a true nightmare!! Ray Bradbury the author of Fahrenheit 451 is at his best in this dystopian novel which later became adapted into the 1966 film adaptation starring Oskar Werner and Julie Christie. The book was amazing and the film has the same grit and depth the novel had. Dark, disturbing, and all too real. Simply magnificent!!
