  • Astrid's Mother
    361 words
    White Oleander: Book vs. Movie Like with most books that are made into movies, this was definitely a disappointment. I have always found that books can tell much better stories than what you see on screen, this was no different. The movie easily cut out very important parts of the story. The beginning of the book is so important because you really get the feel for the weird mother-daughter relationship between Astrid and her Mother. In the movie you only get to see a small portion of how Astrid'...

The actors that are in the movie make everything seem so unrealistic and the play is more serious and truthful to the story that Shakespeare was trying to tell. I don't know what happened during the making of the movie, Macbeth, but something went wrong. First, the actors in the mov...
