Have you ever been surprised to find out a film was based on a book? Film Friday is a weekly feature that spotlights films that were adapted from books.
For today’s Film Friday, I decided to feature one of my favorite films! I adore The English Patient, it’s so full of passion and heartbreak. I haven’t read Michael Ondaatje’s novel and I’m afraid to because I have a feeling it might ruin my love of the film by making me love the book more. Does that make sense?
Synopsis:At the close of WWII, a young nurse tends to a badly-burned plane crash victim. His past is shown in flashbacks, revealing an involvement in a fateful love affair. (-IMDB).
Almásy: There is no God, but I hope someone watches over you.
