In this episode, Adaptation discusses the greatest love story ever told, the badassery of Agnus Nutter, and all the fantastic bits and bobs that made Good Omens (2019) a great adaptation.
After loving Thomas Hardy’s novel as much as we did, it’s somewhat surprising that we ended up being really happy with Far from the Madding Crowd (2015). There were a few nick-picky things we would have done differently, but the film spurs additional understanding and conversations about the themes and characters that we loved and hated going in.
Our hosts are a bit overwhelmed this episode as we discuss GP Taylor’s The Midas Box and the film adaptation The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box. While enjoying the magical realism of the book, there was a lot to take in, and while the movie had them laughing (probably unintentionally), it was a little watery.
Let us know what you thought of the book, the film and our discussion in the comments!
