What are the best book to film adaptations, in your opinion? And, if you could choose one book/short story/novella, etc., to adapt to film, what would it be? Some of my favorites: Pride and Prejudice, BBC version Sin City (graphic novel by Frank Miller) Stardust (book by Neil Gaiman) ...just to name a (very) few! I would love to see an adaptation of Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising series that is faithful to the books. I knew there was a movie made, but as soon as I heard they made the main character American instead of British (as he is in the books) I knew I didn't want to see it.
