Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Comparing Artistic Decisions: Director vs. Dickens - Section 2: Comparing the Film to the Text


I will definitely show this movie at this time again. The version itself engaged everyone. Even if a student didn't particularly like this director's interpretation of Miss Havisham, for example, the character was too creepy to ignore. The timing was also good because they really saw the movie as a reward for working so hard in the last week.
