The Shipping News: The Movie
I'd been waiting until I'd read the book so I finally watched the movie of The Shipping News. While there were lots of changes and things left out, as usual, I thought it really did capture the spirit of the book and many of the quirky characters and main events were still in it. The fact that they filmed it in Newfoundland was great for the authentic scenery shots. Kevin Spacey isn't anything like what I pictured Quoyle to be like based on the descriptions in the book even though I knew he played him in the movie. I love Kevin and Judi though so I quite enjoyed it. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.
