“Joe Gould’s Secret” is a nonfiction story written by Joseph Mitchell, and a movie based on this book is also called “Joe Gould’s Secret” directed by Stanley Tucci. In today’s times a lot of movies are based on a written literature. Many students watch the movie instead of reading the book maybe because it’s more enjoyable but for some they take it as an easy way out. It’s obvious that it’s easier to watch the movie then reading the book but the movie lacks the details that are present in the book. I think if a director of a movie is basing a movie on the book they should add a lot of the little details that lead up to the climax of the story that were present in the book.
Her point of view tells the story of the main character, Jim Burden, who remembers specific moments in an abstract pattern in his life about his Antonia. This is so because the collection of books that make up the novel, My Antonia, is about Willa Cather; the narrator's idea of what and to what point Jim Burden remembers. Miller also states that the novel "lacks focus and abounds in irrelevancies" (Wells 1). This is due to the fact that Cather didn't provide a consistent character portrayal throughout her novel. Another critic, Kim Wells, asserts Miller's opinion on the novel because as he states the novel has many "variations from a theme" (Wells 1).
Littlejohn was later convicted of voluntary manslaughter while armed. Farooq claim that the security firm failed to properly supervise the security staff hired by John Doe.

To avoid discovery, the Ten Booms carefully and cleverly developed an alarm system.
Throughout the film version of Proof, what happens to Catherine is very similar to what happens to her in Auburn’s play. However, the movie is different from the play because it shows the characters in a different light, it takes place in many different settings, and it adds more scenes than the play does. The story lines between the play and the movie have different plots, characters, scenery, and music/sound effects. You will want to read the play to get the best scenario, and leave the movie for the ones who really do not appreciate reading. First of all, the plot of the movie was somewhat similar to the play.
Perfume has many emphasising changes within the plot, many oversights and omissions of scenes from the film as well as sections from the novel; some obvious and large, others small and minor. The main purpose is due to the lack of time the film has, having to largely compress the timeline of ‘high important and major’ events, in order to signify and push forward the key concepts and main ideas from Tom Tykwer’s perspective in comparison to Suskind’s novel. The storyline in both book and film revolve around an unusual and original basis that captures and drags the reader/audience’s emotions, creating the feeling of obligation. The beginning of the film began with Grenouille enclosed and restricted in a jail cell- an event that was to happen much later during the timeline according to the storyline and novel. Director Tom Twyker chose to set the introduction of the film out this way as it created similar effect on the audience in comparison to the first paragraph of the book; it made you think to yourself how?

Jean Valiean changes towards the end of the movie when an impersonator of himself is about to be sentenced to death and Jean sees that the man is innocent and confesses that he is the real Jean Valiean. He had promised this dying woman that he would bring her daughter to see her, but she ended up dying and he seeks this girl out and takes care of her.
