There are a multitude of differences between the novel and movie of Frankenstein that have distorted much of the original work of Mary Shelley. Many of the original intentions and details of the novel have been altered for the 1994 Kenneth Branaugh version of Frankenstein. Although these alterations are not as severe as the common changes of earlier Frankenstein films, they do restrict Mary Shelley's imaginative descriptions and deeper messages of her novel. Throughout the movie there are many changes in the plot and vision of main characters. First of all, the movie never portrays Caroline Beaufort as being the daughter of the unfortunate merchant, Beaufort.
The book has three basic narrators: Robert Walton, Victor Frankenstein, and Frankenstein's monster. The female characters are very weak in this novel, especially Elizabeth, Victor's cousin/fiancé (no they aren't from Arkansas). She is portrayed as the perfect woman, especially after Victor's mother, Caroline dies. She takes the place of the mother figure in the household. But just like all the female characters in the story, her character has little substance.
Anna Maria Tussaud Anna Maria Tussaud was born in Strasbourg on 1 December 1761; her father, a soldier named Joseph Grosholtz, was killed in the Seven Years War just two months before Marie was born so she never met her father. Her mother, Anne-Marie Walder, took her to Bern where she moved to work as a housekeeper for Dr. Philippe Curtius who was a wax Sculpture modeler. Throughout the years all living with Curtius, Tussaund became his biggest fan. She watched him for hours and hours creating Wax Sculptures and became inspired. She also no longer referred to him as Curtius, she called him “uncle.” A couple of years later, Curtius moved to Paris to start working on setting up a wax exhibition.

Together, the two work on the experiment which removes the theme of loneliness and how it can affect someone. In the movie, he does not have brothers nor does it mention Elizabeth, whom he is engaged to before the experiment, is his adopted sister. Frankenstein is never believed to be a murderer in the film and his father is the town magistrate who supports him in killing the monster as opposed to Frankenstein going to fight the monster mano y mano. The end of the movie results in Elizabeth and Frankenstein getting married while the book ends in tragedy for all. An interesting note is that he is not named Victor; instead, he is named Henry and has a friend named Victor.

Even though the movies were very good adaptions, the movies did changes some things whether it was text or scenery. The 1996 Romeo and Juliet, directed by Baz Luhrmann, was a very good adaption of the R+J play. Luhrmann did something very unique with R+J and modernized it. Instead of the movie taking place in Verona, Italy, the movie took place maybe somewhere in California. This R+J had very unique scenery, for example, one scene took place on a beach, and another by a pool, and none of these places were mentioned in the original play.
I forgot that I was wearing iron shoes. Who will believe that I did not do this on purpose?” (28). Secondly, the movie Animal Farm is a failure in comparison to Orwell’s original version because the characters lack personality in the movie. Since there is little to no narrating throughout the movie we do not get to know and understand the characters as well as we do by reading the novel. Throughout the book Orwell chooses to inform the audience of how the characters are feeling about different issues and circumstances.
