Has anyone seen the film version of 'I Capture the Castle'? I would like to rent it out on video, but sometimes films based on brilliant novels turn out to be disappointing. I wondered what anyone thought of it, and how closely it matches the plot of the book, and the atmosphere of the book which I thought was what made the book so good.

I loved the book and wasn't disappointed by the film - I felt it was very much as I had imagined it. The casting was excellent and they stuck closely to the story.
I don't really like seeing film versions of books I love though - I don't like my own images being replaced by someone else's!

I saw the movie of the House of Sand and Fog recently - another of my favourite books. It was well done and true to the book but I thought the actor they'd chosen to play Kathy was completely wrong - too young and pretty, not someone who looked like they'd had an alcohol problem. But that's Hollywood for you!
