I think that you will probably will be astonished, delighted and horrorfied also when you hear what the notoriously hopeless film industry is going to attempt recreating:
- Wuthering Heights. I started crying when I heard that two nights ago. It is probably the one book that truly deserves being a movie, but I so hope with every inch of aching heart that it will be a wonderful moment and not a horrible one, when it is done. I think if it is done well and properly, I will be a sobbing mess in the cinemas when I see it - sobbing with joy that it is really good, and also sobbing because if it is really good, it is going to be such a tragically sad movie!
- Anna Karenina! I can hardly contain my qualms when I heard that it's probably going to end up as a Keira Knightly and Jude Law number. I need no hollywood stars, just anyone at all who could possible play it well. Because this is a story that needs telling, but it needs telling properly! Oh gosh! I so hope it's told properly! Oh, I care too much!
- The Great Gatsby! This one, at least, we have nothing to fear. It is being made by Baz Luhrman, an Australian director, who makes movies every one of them obscurely, but brilliantly. And of course Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby... well he is reflected in every line and movement of Gatsby in the book so really, there couldn't be a more perfect actor.
