Book vs Movie
This Ridley Scott movie starring Nicholas Cage and Sam Rockwell was adapted from the novel by Eric Garcia. The story follows the story of a conman whose daughter shows up and changes his life and the life of his partner. The movie makes some changes to the end, but overall follows the book pretty close!
This David O. Russel movie stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawerence and Robert De Niro and is based on the novel by Matthew Quick. Both focus on mental illness, bipolar disorder in the movie and brain damage in the book. Even though the book and movie are very similar, there are some big changes made.
