    The Lord of the Rings trilogy were excellent adaptations. War Horse was another.
    For classics, Gone With the Wind and The Keys of the Kingdom.

    But I do think that at times , a movie , a director's or an actor's vision or interpretation can cloud your own ideas or views of just what a book was saying or what a character was like...
