The Stone Angel: Books to filmWhen I heard about this movie, I thought it sounded somewhat similar to the screenplay that I've been writing. Of course, the two films are nothing alike except for the fact there is an older lady reflecting on her life to a younger, less wise woman. The Stone Angel stars Hollywood actresses Ellen Page and Ellen Burstyn. Two Ellens for the price of one! I saw a clip of the film on the TV Guide Channel and I got chills. This is a must-see!
As so many movies are, this one is based on a book by Margaret Laurence. The book was published many years ago and I haven't read it but am intrigued by the story. I find it interesting that a movie would be made from a book that's not currently on the best seller lists.
Good material will always stand the test of time though. You can click here for the official movie trailer.
