One of my favourite books, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, is being turned into a movie! Actually, I remember reading a long time ago that Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had bought the rights to the film before the book was even released. Anyway, I first read The Time Traveler’s Wife a few years ago when it was first released in 2004. It quickly became one of my favourite books and I fell in love with Clare and Henry and their beautiful narrative. I cried for the entire last part of the book (books make me cry). The movie shows a lot of promise! I’m not uptight about how movies are translated onto the screen. I understand that a movie is a different medium than a book and sometimes the story needs to be told in a different way to be as effective. Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana look stunning as Clare and Henry in the movie.
Here’s the trailer for the Time Traveler’s Wife. I can’t wait!
