Book : The Yellow Wallpaper(1892)
Movie: The Yellow Wallpaper (2012)
Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Movie is supposed to be just based on the book, that is inspired by the book which really makes me able to say i like both of them equally.
I am usually biased about the fact that books tend to be better than the movie and halfway through the movie i realized this movie is nothing like the book..that made me so disappointed but the ending ..oh the ending.. it blew my mind.
As far as the book is concerned, i have never read a book that explains mental illness this well till now. For the movie, i guess i do like thye fact that there were some changes in the story and it isn’t just focused on the wallpaper. The movie is given more of a horror or supernatural effect as compared to the book, which i thought kinda did not make sense to me for most of those scenes but i guess it’s forgivable because the ending really was a twist and i don’t want to say much, because spoilers.!
