This is the list of film adaptations where I watched the film first, then read the book.
1. Pride and Prejudice
2. Little Children
3. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
4. The Princess Bride
5. Suite Francaise
As I mentioned in my March Watch List, I was/am obsessed with this story set in France 1940, in a small town outside Paris when a German regiment arrives. An officer is billeted with Lucille and her cold Mother-in-law. At first a forbidden attraction, then love blossoms between the German and Lucille but there are bigger issues happening in the town and country. The film was beautiful, the lead characters so painfully subtle in their affection, the ending was just so vexing. The book or books I should say were different. I wanted to read it in the hope that there was more not included in the film. I read 'Dolce' but not 'Storm in June'. I was rather upset with book by the end as it was more unsatisfying an end than the film. Where both have merits, they both have tragic ends that are not really concluded.
