In an effort to increase my reading activity in the year ahead, I've made this list of Oscar-level movies and the books, articles, short stories or stage plays upon which they were based (see Notes).
Methodology: I intend to first read the source material and then watch the film, whereupon I will write a review on how it was adapted, noting any significant changes or embellishments.
Restrictions: All films must have been nominated for two or more Academy Awards, one of which must have been Best Adapted Screenplay (see "Notes" for details). I am limiting this list to films I have not seen and books I have not read. Also, all materials must be readily available through my public library.
Timing: Roughly one book/film a month till completed.
