The joy of reading a good book or watching a good movie is so comforting. You escape your reality for that a brief period of time, right? While some mark themselves in team books, some others root for team movies. A middle ground for both could be the movies that are made from book adaptations. We saw some of these types perform extremely well last year like To All The Boys I’ve Ever Loved and Crazy Rich Asians. This year, we’re hoping that it gets even better as there are many book-to-movie adaptations releasing with an uber-talented cast. Here are some of them listed below.
The Movie Is About: A woman and her husband who is a colonel, living in an assigned house in Hamburg after World War II. Their marriage takes a rough turn when the home’s previous occupants get involved.
