BTT: Coming Soon to a Theater Near You


If you could see one book turned into the perfect movie–one that would capture everything you love, the characters, the look, the feel, the story–what book would you choose?
If there was a guarantee that I wouldn't be disappointed, I would choose Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman, of course. I'm some kind of obsessed with this book, but even though I would love the idea of seeing it, I doubt that it would work, since the perfection of it all, and the reason I fell in love with it, is Aciman's words.

And you can't really translate that into moving pictures.

Regardless, the tagline would undoubtedly be: "You'll kill me if you stop." My favourite quote from the book.

  1. This question is more difficult than imagined, isn't it?

    There are many fabulous books that don't translate to film...but what fun to envision?

  5. Yeah, sometimes the way the author expresses him or herself are what make the book unique, which would be lost in a movie.
