Adaptations - From Book to Film: Home

Resources for information about books that have been made into movies.

Popular examples


Search a collection of newspapers, magazines, journals, and books to find sources that discuss your adaptation.

Film reviews will often discuss the differences/similarities between the book and film.



1. Read the book AND watch the movie.

2. Identify what strikes you about the adaptation before beginning your research.

3. Read book and film reviews.

4. Don't expect to find an article that addresses your needs exactly. It's okay to be creative with how you use your sources!

5. If DiscoverDeWitt is not providing you with great results, try another database or ask a librarian for help!
