And I Read the Book

I used to be a voracious reader. I typically read novels and plays long before I would see the screen version. But after I got married and had children, I stopped reading fiction so much and spent my time with books needed for work. Now that my children have grown up and I've retired, I'm getting back into reading for fun.

For the list below, unless otherwise noted, I saw each film after having read the source material. The productions are presented in chronological order by release date. Where remakes are involved, I've listed all versions seen. My ratings and links to reviews, where available, can be accessed in the accompanying Notes.
