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.
I haven’t read the book, but I adore the film! The scene in the rain where Robert is waiting for Francesca gets me all worked up with tears and I keep saying, “go, go, go,” and when the scene is over I’m just an emotional mess.
Francesca: I had thoughts about him I hardly knew what to do with, and he read every one. Whatever I wanted, he gave himself up to, and in that moment everything I knew to be true about myself was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before.
